Energetic, screenshot2014-09-06at10-52-29amcreative, and unforgettable…all words that describe Phoenix piano legend Charles Lewis. Named the first jazz-category inductee to the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame, Lewis began performing on the piano at church functions when he was just seven years old. In 1953, he moved from Philadelphia to Arizona to attend Arizona State University, and he started performing in 1954 at the 7th Avenue Elks Club jams. He played with several bands before forming the Charles Lewis Quintet. http://mimmusictheater.themim.org/charles-lewis-legacy-quintet-presented-mim-nash

 

After intermission, Desert Dance Theatre presents its featured performance of “Sister Moses: The Story of Harriet Tubman” for the show’s 25th season. This production is a beautiful story of a courageous woman’s determination to free her people from slavery through the Underground Railroad.  She was one of America’s first liberated women of color, who fought against all odds for the sake of freedom and equality. Our goal in producing this program is to bring light to the incredible accomplishments of the anti-slavery activist, Harriet Tubman.

This powerful music / dance / drama features Desert Dance Theatre with Renee Davis as Harriet Tubman, dramatic narration / voice of Harriet by Renee Morgan Brooks, African drumming and music direction by Step Raptis, accompaniment by the Sister Moses String Quartet and traditional spirituals sung by the Sister Moses Choral Ensemble, featuring baritone soloist, Greg Dansby. The unique blend of this 45-minute multidisciplinary presentation highlights the most important episodes of Harriet Tubman’s life, and shares the knowledge and experience of her struggles and accomplishments that will bring a source of inspiration to our audience.

The program follows Tubman’s life as a young slave on a Southern Plantation, her attempts to escape slavery, her work on the Underground Railroad, and her contributions to the Abolitionist movement. Slave songs from that period are featured for their significance as a means of passing information among the slaves. Hidden in the lyrics were vital escape details.

Sister Moses brings history to life through music, dance and drama. Sister Moses is entertaining, educational and truly inspirational!
