The Fairbanks Concert Association presents a reinvented classic with The Sound of (Black) Music!
Recognized as among the “Best of Theater, 2021” by the New York Times, “The Sound of (Black) Music” is a vibrant one-act concert reimagining of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical through a utopian, Afrofuturistic lens full of love. Cherished songs such as “Do-Re-Mi,” “Edelweiss” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” are recast through a Black roots music kaleidoscope of jazz, gospel, blues, soul, funk and Afro-beat.
The concert channels the singular musical gifts of some of today’s most talented Black musicians into an overflowing celebration of Black roots music. Vocalists Vuyo Sotashe, Brianna Thomas, Charenee Wade, Alexis Lombre and Zhanna Reed are supported by an electrifying band to bring to life the most joyous and loving presentation.
This performance is sponsored by ConocoPhillips, Usibelli Coal Mine and the Westmark Hotel & Conference Center.
