Friends, this is what I have been working on all year: preparing for a community concert bringing together the many expressions of the creative arts for A Night of Hope & Reconciliation: For the City, Through the Arts
, at Christ Community Church, Charlottesville on October 1st, 7pm.
My vision and desire has been to facilitate a wide spectrum of artists coming together in the creative process, furthering each individual in their craft and calling, each giving of themselves for something greater than themselves. This collaboration has grown into a full length evening performance, featuring music from my newly released album, You Are My Joy
, as well as many other original works in collaboration with a variety of artists from the community.
The evening will include:
Original works of choreography by local artist and dancer, Lauren Stonestreet, with dancers from The Farm House Cville
Spoken word pieces by Bernard Hankins and La’Tasha Strother
Soloists Nate Emmanuel, Willie Randolph, Selena Cozart O’Shaughnessy, Yemaya de Lorenzo Eberly
and Flutist Cari Shipp Kramer
all anchored in live music ranging from strings, hand bells, children and adult choirs, full band, and vocalists.
An art exhibition will open the evening at 6pm featuring original and commissioned works by Cristina Rutokwski, Chicho Lorenzo, Jennifer Knight and Richard Montoya and others.
