Family Matinee: Linda Tillery & The Cultural Heritage Choir

Family Matinee: Linda Tillery & The Cultural Heritage Choir

Join vocalist and percussionist Linda Tillery and her award-winning ensemble, the Cultural Heritage Choir, for an interactive morning of singing, clapping and dancing. Drawing from the centuries old tradition of African-American children’s play songs and rhymes, families will learn about call and response as well as the rhythms that drive this music and give it vitality. In this exciting program celebrating the music at the root of jazz, the Cultural Heritage Choir will show you how to approach singing with the ears, the eyes and the heart.
