Vocal COalition connects middle and high school students with professional artists in an effort to cultivate community through musical experiences. Students work with singers, songwriters, musicians, hip-hop artists and more, creating a moving live performance collaboration. On February 28th at the History Colorado Center, Vocal COalition will celebrate Black Heritage Month with the presentation of Black Music Matters. Read on for more.
Students from Vocal COalition, North High School Choir, Noel Community Arts School Choir, and Slavens Middle School Choir will be joined by Theo Wilson (poet), kid astronaut (singer/songwriter/musician) and gospel group Spirit of Grace for a journey through the history of African-American music.
This is a fully immersive program, as students work directly with artists through rehearsals to create an atmosphere that honors the culture of music while refining their own music identity. Vocal COalition is open for spring registration (click here for more information), and you can support the Black Music Matters show with a donation or sponsorship (click here for more information).
