On our March 31st concert...

The Harry T. Burleigh Society proudly presented a musical tribute to Burleigh. Speakers provided background and context for the Negro spiritual, Burleigh's arrangements and compositions were performed, and oral history and archival material illuminated the significance of Burleigh at St. George’s Church and his influence on American musical culture.
