This is a busy week for Jim Thomas and the Spirituals Choir!
Last Saturday we sang at the NAACP’s annual Juneteenth celebration.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, June 25, at 6:30 p.m., we’ll make our West Tisbury library debut. The expanded and renovated library now has a beautiful new performance space. The program is free and audience members are encouraged to comment and ask questions after the program.
On Saturday, we perform the first of two benefits for the U.S. Slave Song Project, of which the choir is a part. This one is at Katharine Cornell Theatre, Spring Street, Vineyard Haven. It starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door. Percussionist Chris Seidel will be joining us on snare drum for our finale, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
The second benefit will be at Union Chapel, Oak Bluffs, on Saturday, July 19.
