Heading Up To Glory

For voice and piano, featuring Stephanie Ann Ball, Soprano

At this very special concert, the soul stirring strains of the African American Spiritual will be the vehicle that takes you on a moving journey through African-American History.  Featuring both familiar songs and new favorites by pioneering arrangers Hall Johnson, H.T. Burleigh, Moses Hogan and more, you will be immersed in glorious music rich with stories of hope, strength, and courage that will leave you with a song in your heart.

The spiritual is a cornerstone of American music, and its influence reaches far and wide even today.  This program delves into the history of these songs by exploring their origin and the remarkable ways slaves used the words to communicate their religious beliefs alongside their desires for freedom.  Stephanie has selected a diverse array of arrangers for this program to showcase the beautiful way the spiritual has evolved.  

Stephanie has performed this concert in churches all over the country, from St. Paul’s Cathedral in Mansfield, OH, to Kirkwood Presbyterian in St. Louis, MO, to the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver, CO and more.  It is truly an event that is not to be missed.
