Scope and Contents:
Myrna Summers and Richard Smallwood are two of Washington's most notable gospel composers and performers, both having achieved national and international recognition as concert and recording artists of originality and significant influence in the gospel world. Myrna Summers excels as both a gospel soloist and a composer. Her music is a combination of syncopated rhythmic vibrations of the Pentecostal church, scriptural lyrics, and a poignant harmonic quality. Richard Smallwood, composer, pianist, lecturer, and director, grew up learning the gospel music tradition of the Black church. His gospel stylings were rooted in hymns, traditional spirituals, jubilees, and Holiness church music. The Division of Performing Arts presented the concert as part of the Black American Gospel Music Series. The Black American Gospel Music Series and this program were organized by Bernice Reagon Johnson. Program number AC408.6.
