Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco
Join Alex Taite – singer, composer, pianist, and Bay Area native, as he explores the depths and beauty of the Negro Spiritual. Showcasing original arrangements of his favorite spirituals, jazz standards, and other exclusively American selections, Alex interweaves a vivid historical narrative of American culture while examining how our American music stems from the trauma of those first enslaved people who sang to pass the time in the fields or lend some comfort in a dark room.
