"Amazing Grace " Played by Barbara G. Sherrill
On February 13, 2003, I began a new journey in concert production with "An Evening of Grace & Style". A Black History Month event featuring African Americans in Opera and Classical Music. Composer and pianist Barbara Sherrill was instrumental in the preparation and presentation of the program. Additionally, the Barbara Sherrill Chorale was the featured and closing attraction.
Currently, i am organizing a FREE concert to celebrate the 150th anniversary of END of CIVIL WAR & 13th Amendment ENDING SLAVERY on Sunday May 24, 2015 at Liberty Hall-Hollywood Forest Lawn, Los Angeles with support from Employee Community Fund of the Boeing Company, Colburn Foundation, and Rainey/Pierson Property Management.
Barbara Sherrill now lives in Atlanta but her You Tube piano recording of AMAZING GRACE has provided inspiration to me. Additionally, Soprano Sheila Judson was member of Barbara Sherrill Chorale on Febrary 13, 2003. On May 24, 2015, Sheila will sing an aria from the opera Harriet Tubman: When I Crossed That Line To Freedom with pianist Polli Chambers- Salazar.
