A History of Gospel Music: 150 Years on the Wings of Song, 1863-2013

November 7th 2013 - 5:30pm

Join us at the Oklahoma History Center on Thursday November 7 as we explore the history of Gospel in Oklahoma. The Ambassadors' Concert Choir will use narrators to highlight Gospel’s development from slave chants, shouts, and work songs through the present. The program will feature hymns by Issac Watts, John Wesley and others; spirituals by William Dawson, Hall Johnson and the famed Fisk Jubilee Singers; and gospel music from some of the best known writers of yesterday and today. There will be a portion of the program focusing on Oklahoma writers and musicians including, “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” written by Wallis Willis, the music of Guthrie native Glenn Edward Burleigh, the music of Jessie Mae Renfro Sapp, and others. The museum will open at 6:00 PM with the program running from 7:00 – 9:00. Admission is free and seating is limited.
