On December 6th and 7th, Drayton Hall presents African-American Spirituals with two concerts by Ann Caldwell and The Magnolia Singers.
Ann Caldwell is a full-time vocalist, producer, and performing artist who has studied voice with June Bonner, former soprano with the Metropolitan Opera. The Magnolia Singers are an a capella vocal ensemble dedicated to the preservation and performance of early Southern music and spirituals. These concerts are a rare opportunity to gather in the atmospheric raised English basement of Drayton Hall to hear music that could have been heard centuries ago in the surrounding fields and praise houses.
Saturday, December 6th, 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Sunday, December 7th, 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Prior to the concerts, guests will enjoy a catered reception and informal tours of the house given by Drayton Hall's experienced museum guides. Reservations are required.
Tickets are $45 for adults and $40 for Friends of Drayton Hall.
