Concert celebrates musical traditions through theme of sisterhood

A show celebrating European and African-American musical traditions through the lens of sisterhood is coming to Southern Oregon University at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 7, at the SOU Music Recital Hall, 450 S. Mountain Ave., Ashland, according to a news release.

“Honoring My Sister’s Beauty” will feature Los Angeles opera singers Lindsay Abdou and Brooke Lohman, Seattle pianist Joseph Williams, and violinist, poet, and educator Dr. Lesa Terry. Performances will include art songs, blues, and spirituals. Original poetry and visuals will also be featured, intended to showcase showcase women’s struggles for greater equality and racial reconciliation.
