Anthony Russell Concert - Convergence
Saturday, August 8, 2015 | 8 p.m.
Unitarian Universalist Meeting House | 1089 Main St. Housatonic, MA
Spirituals from the Shtetle, Davening from the Delta
A concert blending Yiddish Art Songs and Agrican-American Spirituals. As a convert to Judaism, Russell, a former professional opera singer, discovered the soul-deep connections between 19th-century black music, Yiddish art songs, and cantorial music. Graced with a stunning bass voice reminiscent of Paul Robeson, Russell explores these connections in his unique show: Convergence. This is a benefit concert for Rimon.
