Harry T Burleigh was a composer and arranger who codified the form of the Negro Spiritual and brought the songs to a wider classical audience. He was also the baritone soloist at St. George's church for over 50 years.
This March, the Harry T. Burleigh Society proudly presents a musical tribute to Burleigh and this historic program. Speakers will provide background and context for the Negro spiritual, Burleigh's arrangements and compositions will be performed, and oral history and archival material will illuminate the significance of Burleigh at St. George’s church and his influence on American musical culture.
