David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage

Meet the Artist welcomes the return engagement of the world-famous Harlem Gospel Choir, whose members will have audiences on their feet, clapping and singing to their hearts' content, enthusiastically spreading the universal message of peace, hope, and joy. In this encore visit, the choir joins Lincoln Center in honoring Black History Month by offering a rare interactive concert experience. Spend your morning with these amazing vocalists, known for their performances for (and with) Pope John Paul II, Nelson Mandela, U2, Sir Elton John, and more.

Gospel music ranks among the priceless musical gifts that Harlem has given the world. Deeply rooted in American history and African tribal song, gospel music is the heart and soul of the African American church, an expression of faith, and a merging of cultures and musical styles.
