Concert of Negro Spirituals

St. Alphonsus Liguori (Rock) (St. Louis) | October 25 2023

Please join us for our annual Concert of Negro Spirituals at St. Alphonsus Liguori “Rock” Catholic Church on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. The Negro Spiritual is a genre of Christian music that is associated with African Americans, which merged sub-Saharan African cultural heritage with the experiences of being held in bondage in slavery. Spirituals encompass the "sing songs," work songs, and plantation songs that evolved into the gospel songs in church. While they were often rooted in biblical stories, they also described the extreme hardships endured by enslaved African Americans. We are excited to highlight these important works of art once again. This is a free event however, a ‘free will’ offering will be collected a portion of which will go to support the music program of Cardinal Ritter College Prep High School. Our theme this year is “Over my head I hear music in the air!”
