Tribute to the American Black Composer

Milwaukee Children's Choir

February 23rd, 2019 | St. Mark A.M.E. Church

Milwaukee Children’s Choir honors the contributions of Black Americans to our musical heritage.

We will honor local Milwaukee composer Dr. Wallace Cheatham and acknowledge the contributions of many other artists including Florence Price, Margaret Bonds, William Grant Still, Rollo Dilworth, Nat King Cole, Ben E. King and many more. Milwaukee Children’s Choir will perform works from spirituals to jazz to traditional to art songs.

Please join us as we celebrate our musical heritage that will span the ages for all time! We are proud to be a participant in the 400th commemoration 1619 and beyond, the arrival of the first Africans brought to the English speaking new world.
