On Sunday, February 17, at 3 pm, soprano Sabrina Coleman Clark, accompanied by pianist Daniel Lau, will present a two-part program of classical vocal music at Calvary Episcopal Church, 31 Woodland Avenue, Summit. Admission is free, and the program includes arias by Puccini and Verdi, as well as Spirituals and art songs.
Part One, titled “Legacy of Hope: The Marian Anderson Story” is a multimedia presentation celebrating the career of Ms. Anderson, who became a world-famous symbol of black aspiration after her Lincoln Memorial concert in 1939. There will be an informative slide presentation, with narration and singing by Coleman Clark.
In Part Two, “I, Too, Sing America: celebrating the African-American Vocal Tradition,” Coleman Clark performs spirituals, art songs of African-American composers, and songs inspired by the music and history of African-Americans. The program includes traditional Negro Spirituals, music of renown African-American female composers, settings of Langston Hughes, and a powerful setting of Martin Luther King’s speech “I Have a Dream” by Lee Hoiby.
