"Wade in the Water" is written by Blues City Cultural Center's Co-Founder and Artistic Director Levi Frazier, Jr. It features the historical development of Gospel music in the United States as told through contemporary dance and song. The production will feature the music of Rev. William Herbert Brewster and his Great-Granddaughter, Kentosha Brewster Evans, as the Musical Director. “Wade it the Water” will also feature the music of Lucie Campbell and Thomas Dorsey.
The production will look at how African-American music was used as hidden meanings to tell the history and activism. Join us as we journey through music and cultural history.
