WHO: TAMPA SPIRITUAL ENSEMBLE
Artistic Directors: Shenita Berrian & Yetta Hansell
This group has been pleasing audiences in Tampa Bay and surrounding areas for 5 years. Members of the ensemble met while singing together at The Univ. of South Florida, in The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, Opera Tampa and other professional ensembles. They quickly formed a friendship and bond through a shared passion of preserving the Negro Spiritual and celebrating African –American composers and arrangers. The rich acoustics of Peace Church will complement these strong voices and exciting selections. The ensemble is dedicated to bringing our community inspiring concerts and Black History programs that celebrate African- American traditional music and also works by rising black composers.
