This evening, I attended a concert to benefit the Alexandria Black history Museum at the George Washington Masonic Memorial in Alexandria. As I had mentioned last month in a post about this topic, this was a very inspirational evening of gospel music full of life and spirit.
Performing in the concert were three groups: The Daughters of Miriam from Meade Memorial Episcopal Church, the Heritage Signature Chorale, and Seasons. The position of Mistress of Ceremony was given to Roslyn McCallister Brock, Vice Chairman of the NAACP. The songs which were sung included: Steady Soldier, Jesus is a Rock, The Last Words of David, and Wade In The Water.
As a whole, I am very hopeful that this concert will become a yearly tradition for Alexandria and more popularity will come from it. The performances that were given this evening were stellar and could rival any that are seen at other venues in the Washington DC Metro area.
