From the Harford County Public Library:
The Black Gospel Music Experience will return to Havre de Grace for the fifth year in celebration of Black History Month. Choral groups, singers and musicians will entertain guests starting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 24th at the Havre de Grace Opera House, located at 121 N. Union Ave.
The Male Choir of Gospel Tabernacle, instrumental group Mark Grimsley and Company and soloist Eva Taylor are among those scheduled to perform. Camay Calloway Murphy, prominent Baltimore educator and daughter of celebrated jazz musician Cab Calloway, will introduce the show with a brief discussion of black gospel music.
“We are excited about the many local choirs and soloists who will be making an appearance and sharing with the audience the history and traditions of black gospel and its impact in the black communities throughout the years,” said Irmgarde Brown, branch manager of the Havre de Grace Library. “We are thankful to be able to hold the concert on the top floor of the Havre de Grace Opera House, as the Havre de Grace Library currently occupies temporary quarters while it undergoes an expansion and renovation project,” she further commented.
Music enthusiasts of all ages are welcome to attend the event. More information can be obtained by calling the Havre de Grace Library at 410-939-6700 or by visiting the Library’s temporary location at 203 Market Street. The program is sponsored by the Havre de Grace Friends of Harford County Public Library.
