City : Key West, Florida
Venue : Private Event
happy to play a private event for the Key West Literary Seminar. The 40th anniversary of this excellent seminar bringing together writers from around the world. www.kwls.org
This 40th Seminar’s “singing” of America takes inspiration from Walt Whitman’s “I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear”; from Langston Hughes’ ardent response — “I, too, sing America”; and from that great anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which calls us to “the faith that the dark past has taught us” and “the hope that the present has brought us.” Also joining our stage as special musical guests will be Florida Memorial University’s Ambassador Chorale, a 40-member vocal group from South Florida’s only historically Black university.
