Vocalessence is presenting its annual Witness concert this Sunday at the Ordway Center in St. Paul. This Black History Month tradition always features a guest artist and a commissioned new work. This year the guest is trumpeter Hannibal Lokumbe. His new work is called “In the Spirit of Being”.
In addition to spending time in the Twin Cities to prepare for the performance, Lokumbe mentored young men through journaling and music.
