Can I get an amen?

The world-famous Harlem Gospel Choir will have audiences on their feet, clapping and singing to their hearts’ content, tomorrow, August 13 at 5:00 p.m. The hour-long performance, appropriate for ages five and up, will take place at the Brooklyn Public Library’s (BPL) Coney Island Library, 1901 Mermaid Avenue near West 19th Street.

The performance is part of the library’s partnership with Lincoln Center Education (LCE), the educational cornerstone of Lincoln Center, to bring free music, theater and dance performances to BPL branches in August and September. We wrote about the debut performance at New Utrecht library last week.

Performing contemporary gospel with a touch of jazz and blues, the Harlem Gospel Choir is synonymous with power vocals, glorious sound and infectious energy. For more than two decades, they have been America’s premier gospel choir and have toured the globe, thrilling audiences with the inspirational power of black gospel music.

The performance will be followed by a question and answer session with the performers. Titled Lincoln Center Local Live (LCL), the series will culminate in a special presentation live-streamed from Lincoln Center’s campus.

To learn more, visit aboutlincolncenter.org/lclocal. Performers, dates and locations are subject to change. All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
