The spectacular and vibrant three-time Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir makes its UGA Presents debut with a special program celebrating South African and American artists associated with the struggle for civil rights and social justice. Expect to hear South African freedom songs as well as music by Aretha Franklin, Harry Belafonte, and Mahalia Jackson, in addition to traditional African gospel music and spirituals. Through its earthy rhythms, rich harmonies, brilliant costumes, and winning spirit, the Soweto Gospel Choir truly uplifts the soul.
Performances of Young People
This program is designed to expose K-12 students to the performing arts at a young age by facilitating in-person, culturally diverse experiences for them. The program’s purpose is to inspire the next generation of artists and arts supporters. The costs of these performances are generously subsidized by friends of the Performing Arts Center who share that vision. Parents, guardians, and teachers are encouraged to exercise their personal judgement when determining if programs are appropriate for their children and students. Admission to Performances for Young People is $2 for students and $4 for adults. Students must be at least six years old to attend. Large school groups should use the order form for reservations (forthcoming). Home school groups should contact the box office at (706) 542-4400 or in person Monday-Friday, 10:00 am-5:00 pm.
