Our 10th Season Begins!

Jim Thomas is back on Martha’s Vineyard, and rehearsals of the Spirituals Choir will resume on Wednesday, April 16, from 6 to 7 p.m. Location to be announced. New singers welcome!

This is the choir’s 10th season. We’re looking forward to a great one.

    Looking forward to this season of singing with the U.S. Slave Song Project. The more I learn about slavery, the greater an honor it is to sing these songs for the people who are no longer here to sing them. I am so grateful for all who make this experience possible. The music never fails to inspire and transform!

    • You said it. We’re helping keep these songs alive, and making ourselves more alive in the process. Singing these songs I remember that music isn’t just a performance art or a spectator sport — it’s a survival strategy.
