After a moving virtual performance in February 2021, we are eager to experience the American Spiritual Ensemble in person. Comprised of some of the finest classically trained singers in the United States, the mission of the American Spiritual Ensemble is to keep the American Negro spiritual alive.
Since its inception by Everett McCorvey in 1995, the vocalists have thrilled audiences around the world with their dynamic repertoire ranging from spirituals to classical to jazz and Broadway numbers highlighting the Black experience. The American Spiritual Ensemble is unique in that over 90% of the members are accomplished soloists who have sung in theaters and opera houses world wide, including the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and abroad in Italy, Germany, Britain, Scotland, Spain and Japan. The resulting sound of this group is something that choral groups with two or three featured soloists cannot duplicate.
The event is free and open to Denison Students, Faculty and Staff. A limited number of free public tickets are available. Tickets available beginning Jan. 31. All events subject to change. Audience members will be subject to Denison COVID Guidelines in place at the time.
