Welcome to 2022!
We’re two months into 2022 and there are already a few events you don’t want to miss from Landmarks! Read below to learn more.
Originally scheduled for January, Common Ground has new dates!
The spirit of Common Ground is in keeping with Landmarks’ longtime encouragement of international reconciliation. The program is made up of works in which composers have taken ideas from other cultures and blended them with their own.
Featuring Bach’s Brandenburg No. 5, William Grant Still’s Ennanga, Fela Sowande’s “Joyful Day” from African Suite and so much more, this concert will be sure to bring joy and warmth during the cold winter month.
These concerts will take place on February 26th at Hibernian Hall at 7pm, and February 27th at Bethel AME at 5pm.
