Black History Month concert to be held in Westborough
Westborough – Musicians from four area churches will perform their annual concert at the Congregational Church of Westborough to celebrate Black History Month on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 4 p.m. The concert will be led under the directorship of Curtis Richardson, and will feature spirituals, most composed over a century ago, but updated by two African American composers. Members of the choirs from the Congregational Church of Westborough and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, also from Westborough, will join members of the Praise Teams from Pleasant Street Seventh Day Adventist Church from Worcester and the Northborough Seventh Day Adventist church.
Also performing at the concert will be the Praise Team from Pleasant Street Seventh Day Adventist Church in Worcester doing a cross of gospel and alternative Christian music, entitled “Well Done.” Young people from that church will also perform interpretative dances, using ribbons. Alto saxophonist Leighton Kennedy will perform one number from his recently released CD, “Leighton Kennedy.” Accompanying the choir will be a quartet of musicians.
The concert is free to the public, thanks in part to the Westborough Cultural Council’s grant to “support African American composers.” Donations are gratefully accepted and refreshments will be served after the concert.
