A fundraiser for 300 singers from churches to get to Carnegie Hall for a World Premiere with text by celebrated author Alice Walker
This is a fundraiser to assist the travel,airfare and lodging of 300 singers from interfaith churches from San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Seattle and Detroit to get to Carnegie Hall for a celebration concert of trademark Negro Spirituals and a World Premiere.
Update:This is Jacqueline Hairston. On behalf of Alice Walker and our singers, I thank you for making it possible for us to achieve our initial goal. We still need your help. As the saying goes, it always takes more money than planned for.
In the spirit of The New Year, thank you for giving. Your gift now will ensure even more so that any additional expenses that our singers and musicians may incur will be offset.
Happy New Year 2012!
The concert: On Sunday, February 19, 2012, a glorious afternoon of singing is bejeweled by the world premiere of a large choral work by Jacqueline Hairston in tribute to her cousin, the legendary Negro Spirituals arranger and conductor, Jester Hairston.
