The Friday, Feb. 23, concert, titled Lift Every Voice, features Grammy-nominated singer Oleta Adams and the 120-voice In Unison chorus, which focuses on interpreting African and African American music.
The concert is cosponsored by AARP in St. Louis. Members who bring their AARP cards to Powell Hall will get a surprise gift.
Sheila Holm, community outreach director for AARP in St. Louis, said the concert helps AARP connect with a segment of the population that has a rich local history in entertainment, with stars like Miles Davis, Chuck Berry and the “St. Louis Blues” itself.
“This is a way we can bring the whole community together to celebrate the richness of our culture right here,” Holm said.
“The historical impact of the African American population in St. Louis is huge and continues to be significant.”
