Lyceum offers an extraordinary music event, the history of Gospel music in America as presented by Suzanne Buell.

The program will feature the music of Mavis Staples, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mike Foster and many others as well as some traditional spirituals. Suzanne will tell stories of the origins of this American music and we will journey with her and find how some of these songs shaped the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and gave life to many modern rock and blues artists.
