Leaning: Songs of Strength and Justice

Sat March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

Becca May Grant, Madison-based pianist, composer, and educator, and the Rivers, a dynamic 12-voice vocal ensemble, will present Leaning: Songs of Strength and Justice, a concert of original gospel songs, on March 7. May Grant’s compositions grow textually and musically from her 25 years’ experience of being welcomed as family into an African-American Pentecostal church community, as a white Lutheran.

The Rivers deliver rich, soulful harmonies and soaring solo vocal improvisations. Each instrumentalist is a leader of their own projects and busy on the Madison and Milwaukee music scenes: Paul Dietrich, trumpet, Rick Flowers, drums, Richard Hildner, guitar, Laurie Lang, bass, and George Ramsey, organ. P.Berkbigler Design and Illustration will create visual imagery to enhance the music.

Special guests include Fabu, former Madison poet laureate; Betsy Ezell, jazz vocalist; Sisters in Song Community Choir, of Africasong Productions; Deborah Garrett Thomas, mezzo soprano; and Lena Archer, worship leader.
