Join Classicopia as we celebrate African-American History month with a powerful and fun program featuring spirituals and ragtime. Mezzo-soprano Laura Compton joins pianist/Artistic Director Daniel Weiser in this thrilling concert that will include exciting arrangements of such favorites as “Amazing Grace,” “Wade in the Water,” “Deep River,” “My Lord, What a Morning” and many more. Dr. Weiser will also play some wonderful ragtime by Scott Joplin, James Scott, James Lamb and more and talk about how both of these musical traditions came together in the early part of the 20th century to produce some of the first truly American music that would spread around the world and lead to the rise of the blues and jazz as our American idiom.
