Comments 38 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’m excited to present a very special 2 show ticket giveaway with The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, featuring the following performances:

No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks

The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts presents the dazzling multimedia work No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks on February 24, 2019, at 7:00pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall as part of the Beyond Words series.

The late poet was a radical and disruptive presence within the national literary scene, becoming the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1950. In this ambitious creation, innovative art-collective Manual Cinema collaborates with Chicago-based poets Eve L. Ewing and Nate Marshall to craft an inspiring biographical narrative, featuring a live six-piece band and original score by Jamila Woods and Ayanna Woods.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo

The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts presents the soulful, harmony-driven sounds of Ladysmith Black Mambazo on March 2, 2019, at 8:00pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall.

Sharing the bill alongside Malian guitarist Habib Koité and lutist Bassekou Kouyate, the nine-member choral group returns to a sold-out Chan Centre for the first time since 2006 on their global tour of Shaka Zulu Revisited: 30th Anniversary Celebration, for which they earned the Best World Music Album of 2018 and their fifth Grammy Award.

“Ladysmith Black Mambazo is one of the world’s most admired musical ensembles. Their repertoire is beautifully uplifting — messages of hope and unity translated through stunning vocal harmonies and energetic performances,” says Joyce Hinton, Co-Managing Director of the Chan Centre.
