Do you want to learn more about Balm in Gilead; Go Tell It On the Mountain; Kum ba yah; Oh Freedom; Swing, Low, Sweet Chariot; Wade in the Water, and other spirituals? Spirituals are the religious folksongs of Black American slaves that began to appear early in the nineteenth century.

This participatory workshop includes a demonstration performance by the Kenwood UMC Vested Choir, classic audio CDs by choirs and soloists, and DVDs. Workshop assistants are Rev. Lawrence J. McGuin, Pastor of Kenwood UMC; and Larry Wheelock, Kenwood UMC Director of Music Ministries.
