Description

Since 1987, The Sound has delighted audiences throughout the Puget Sound region with concerts that bring joy to the heart, a clap to the hands, a tear to the eye, and a stomp to the feet. The typical menu of a program by The Sound will include an entree of Negro Spirituals sung a cappella and seasoned with anecdotes for flavor, augmented with side dishes of dance and/or poetry, and topped off with a generous dessert of Gospel. It is truly a "soul food" meal designed to uplift and strengthen the spirit. On Feb. 19, 2012, The Sound's entree in an Ensemble Spotlight at Carnegie Hall (NY, NY) was seasoned with spontaneous applause and topped off with a standing ovation from a capacity audience.
