BALTIMORE — BlackRock Center for the Arts will host the Grammy Award-winning, African-American, all-woman acapella ensemble Sweet Honey in the Rock on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at 7 p.m. as part of their 15th Anniversary Season opening weekend.
The troupe’s powerful and moving sound holds roots of gospel music, spoken word, blues and jazz. Starting out in the D.C. vocal workshop Black Repertory Theater in 1973, the women have since made it their mission to present African-American history and culture through the powerful expression of sign language, song, and dance. This performance will feature sign-language interpretation (stage right).
Tickets to see Sweet Honey in the Rock are between $29-55. Tickets may be purchased by phone: 301-528-2260 or online: blackrockcenter.org. Patrons who benefit from sign-language interpretation are recommended to purchase stage right seats or may send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
