“Sweet Honey in the Rock” To Appear Feb. 1
Grammy Award-winning a cappella group “Sweet Honey in the Rock” will perform Feb. 1, for the semiannual Walla Walla College Gala Concert to benefit the Thomas Hampson Humanities Merit Endowed Scholarship.
Since 1973, the group has combined contemporary rhythms and narratives with a musical style rooted in the spirituals and hymns of the black church.
To date, 12 scholarships have been awarded to humanities students from the fund, which was established by Hampson’s first benefit recital in 1992. One annual recipient is selected by the WWC Humanities Committee, made up of faculty representatives from each of the humanities disciplines at Walla Walla College.
More information about the upcoming concert is available by phoning (509) 527-2364 or (800) 377-2586.
