Event Notes

× American Roots: The Gospel Experience is a collaboration of Key Chorale and Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, exploring the rich tradition of black gospel music in America. The third offering in the American Roots series, this edition brings together two of Sarasota’s most renowned performing arts groups — weaving the spirited style of WBTT’s singers, dancers and musicians with the soaring choral harmonies of the Key Chorale Chamber Singers. This high-energy show will celebrate the deeply emotional music and movement at the heart of African-American worship. Highlights will include “Amazing Grace,” “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” and “Oh Happy Day,” in a moving, inspirational performance.
