Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the universal heart and soul that connects us all.
Revered regionally, respected nationally for their extraordinary live performances, SPOKEN HAND has championed the organic unification of music culture traditions from around the world for 16 years. They compose completely original arrangements and present a unique sound to audiences, “the kind of rhythmic extravaganza you can listen to all day, every day, forever,” hails Philadelphia City Paper. PHILIP HAMILTON’S VOICES is an a cappella ensemble which presents a natural, masterful merger of international vocal tones and techniques. These two distinct groups join creative forces to offer audiences a ground-breaking presentation of compositional works inspired by an array of cultural and musical influences.
