The women of legendary vocal group SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK “unite to create a sound so pure, smooth, and homogenous that it does not seem humanly possible.” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram) Their deep commitment to creating music out of the rich textures of African-American traditions makes them a perfect fit for our annual celebration of the trailblazing Brooklyn-born children’s book author Ezra Jack Keats. This edition of our Ezra Jack Keats Family Concert marks the 50th anniversary of Keats’ most famous work, The Snowy Day, and as always will feature a reading before the music.
