Spirituals SING with Alice Parker
2 PM - 3 PM
Chapel of St. James
Join Alice Parker, choral conductor, educator and Artistic Director of Melodious Accord, for an hour of communal singing in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
African American Spirituals were the life-blood of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s movement. "We are an army that will sing but not slay," he wrote. All are welcome to experience the power of these wonderful songs under the leadership of Melodious Accord's Alice Parker and Pamela Warrick Smith.
As Artistic Director of Melodious Accord, Alice Parker leads communal sings, workshops, and intensive professional training programs for composers, teachers, and conductors. Of Parker’s work as a leader of group song, one observer remarked, “There is no one who is not a singer when she leads.”
