Lorraine Hansberry Theatre Presents "Soulful Christmas: A Gospel Holiday Concert" December 14-23, 2017
Music Director Yvonne Cobbs and the LHT Choir Spread Joy and Lift Spirits with Over 20 Secular and Inspirational Gospel Music Favorites for the Holidays
San Francisco Bay Area gospel solo artist and Music Director, Yvonne Cobbs, conducts the legendary 16 member LHT Gospel Choir made up of both veteran and new choir members who sing inspirational holiday music -- both old and new, sacred and secular from Go Tell It On The Mountain and Hallelujah to I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. The show is a roof-raising, hand-clapping, joyful good time for all ages.
Founded in 1981, Lorraine Hansberry Theatre, the West Coast's premiere African American theatre company, produced its first Gospel Music production -- James Baldwin's The Amen Corner -- 23 years ago. Since then, LHT has become renowned for its holiday gospel productions, including Tambourines to Glory and Black Nativity, both by Langston Hughes, the experimental Gethsemane Park by Ishmael Reed, and Vinnette Carol's classic Your Arm's Too Short to Box with God, among others.
