Free Soul of the Arts Concerts This Saturday

As ArtsWave enters its last few weeks of the 2019 ArtsWave Community Campaign to raise money for the region’s arts, this Saturday, April 13, it’s hosting two Soul of the Arts Concerts, free of charge and open to the public.

As part of ArtsWave Days, brought to you by Macy’s, two concerts will be held at the School for Creative & Performing Arts, one at 4 p.m. and the second at 6 p.m.

The 4 p.m. concert includes: Revolution Dance, performing “LEAP,” the story of people of color who risked it all simply to dance; Cincinnati Super Choir, performing a musical journey through gospel, jazz and R&B; and Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, performing soul, blues and funk instrumentals from the ‘70s.

The 6 p.m. concert includes: MUSE, performing popular and lesser known songs across a spectrum of musical styles including James Weldon Johnson’s “Lift Every Voice and Sing” to “Ella’s Song” by Sweet Honey in the Rock, inspired by activist Ella Baker; Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra, performing Earth, Wind and Fire music, including “fantasy,” and “After the Love Has Gone;” and Dayton Contemporary Jazz Company, performing to Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin and the funk and bebop-infused New Orleans-based Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Through ArtsWave Days, twice-a-month, the nonprofit planner, promoter and funder of the arts is showcasing the region’s arts as part of its 2019 annual ArtsWave Community Campaign, which runs through April 30.

Besides Macy’s title sponsorship, Frisch’s® Big Boy® is the series sponsor and Enquirer Media is the Print Media Sponsor.
