Dr. Maxine Mimms Presents:
Let The Strings Speak Africa: Life After COVID
August 6, 2022 | 2 PM
Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute
After two years of Covid, Dr. Maxine Mimms invites you to join us LIVE at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (LHPAI) for her Annual Community Concert; directed this year by the extraordinary Josephine Howell. Six years ago, Dr. Mimms created this community concert as a way to integrate music, intergenerational connectivity, and healing. The journey continues with direction from Josephine and a dream team of amazing women.
The rhythmic flow intertwines our past, guides our future, and uses the instruments as a tool to create healing vibrations. This intergenerational performance will showcase the influence of musical instruments, dance, and vocals on our journey, recognizing the power of passing down traditions. Collectively, we set the stage for the joy of healing.
This year’s concert will immerse you in the spirit of Africa by showcasing an array of local artists and the journey of healing music from Africa to America. The show will be live in-person, and live-streamed for our audience still staying safe at home or outside of the Seattle area.
