Performing Arts Series – SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK®
Celebrate the intersection of gospel, jazz, folk, African and African-American traditional, hip hop and pop with SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK®, the internationally renowned a cappella ensemble, as they raise our roofs and collective conscience. Founding members Carol Maillard and Louise Robinson, Nitanju Bolade Casel and Aisha Kahlil will perform alongside Christie Dashiell and Rochelle Rice with bassist Romeir Mendez. Meanwhile, Barbara Hunt will eloquently and enthusiastically interpret the entire performance, ensuring it is accessible and enjoyable to all audience members. During this one-of-a-kind performance, the ensemble will be joined by University voice students and local gospel choir members.
Kinetic, cultured and connected, the Grammy-nominated female ensemble has created a meaningful legacy through their diverse collection of socially-conscious message music. The versatile vocalists are perhaps even more relevant in 2022 than any other time in their four decade career of unifying song and improvisational performance that empowers and inspires audiences of all ages.
