"Celebrate Kwanzaa" (2015-2016 Concert Season)

  • St. Louis County Library, Florissant Valley Branch 195 South New Florissant Road Florissant, MO, 63031 United States

"Celebrate Kwanzaa" is the third concert of our annual 2015-16 concert series. This annual free concert features music and stories inspired by themes of family values, virtues, and community building. The Songs of Africa Ensemble sings in a variety of African languages. Our Kwanzaa celebration will include holiday favorites in Kiswahili, English, Spanish and more, and is appropriate for all ages. 

Our 2015-2016 concert series hopes to raise interest and support for the Performing Arts Exchange (or simply "The Exchange"), a newly proposed project from African Musical Arts. The Exchange will be an online music database for preserving and promoting music of African-descent composers. It will be a resource for students, musicians, music teachers and professors, and the general public.
