For 39 years, the campus group Black Voices of Inspiration has performed spiritual, gospel and contemporary songs every spring. This year, they have combined efforts with Maestro Nicholas Palmer and the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra.
The concert, titled, “Gospel Meets Symphony,” is under the direction of Twana Harris, Black Voices of Inspiration artist in residence.
In a press release issued by Harris and Renee Thomas, director of the Black Cultural Center, they say, “Every once in a while an opportunity comes by that affirms your sense of community and place, acknowledges your pride and history and inspires you. This is one of those opportunities.”
The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. on April 5 at the Long Center for the Performing Arts, located at 111 N. Sixth St., Lafayette.
Tickets are on sale now and are available online at lafayettesymphony.org or by calling the Long Center box office at 765-742-6463.
