Sweet Honey In The Rock

Celebrating the Holy Days

Join Washington, D.C.-based, African-American a cappella ensemble, Sweet Honey in the Rock, for a rare and intimate celebration of the Holy Days. With five-part harmonies and sign language interpretation, Sweet Honey’s sound ranges from African to blues to gospel and jazz. Celebrating the Holy Days offers a rare fusion of traditional American holiday spiritual songs and hymns, as well as songs from other cultures and religions ranging from Africa to Israel. The three-time Grammy® Award-nominated and internationally renowned group will also perform songs from the group’s extensive repertoire, which includes We Are, Let There Be Peace, The Women Gather, and Come Ye. Since 1973, Sweet Honey has empowered and inspired with songs about a range of social issues, blending potent messages with gorgeous artistry to stir the mind and the soul.

After the concert, the audience is invited to stay for an interactive conversation with Sweet Honey, reflecting on their journey over the last two years and the creative opportunities they explored during the pandemic.

Sweet Honey In The Rock
…I have always believed art is the conscience of the human soul and that artists have the responsibility not only to show life as it is but to show life as it should be. … Sweet Honey In The Rock has withstood the onslaught. She has been unprovoked by the 30 pieces of silver. Her songs lead us to the well of truth that nourishes the will and courage to stand strong. She is the keeper of the flame.
