Hello Members of TSP. This is your page. It was created to be a hub for disseminating information, such as upcoming rehearsals and events, and to assist you with learning the various pieces of music that we will be performing. I hope you find it to be a helpful resource. .

The following link will take you to the DU Lamont School of Music webpage that has information about The Spirituals Project, including our current performing activities. Feel free to share it with your friends, but not our portfolio page, which is private and exclusively for TSP members. The Lamont homepgae has a list of "Special Pages" at the bottom (this is an update). The very first item on the list is "The Spirituals Project Choir."

Many of you have been asking about our concert dates. There are still a number of the invitations that have not been confirmed as of yet, but I have decided to post all of the invitations, even those that are still pending, so that you may at least pencil the dates in on your calendar. Those that are still pending I will indicate as "PENDING." If you don't see that, it means the date is confirmed. Thank you for your patience!

Vote for the Black American West Museum, Home of Dr. Justina Ford!
Below is a flyer for the event for this Saturday, press release (we're mentioned in the second paragraph along with other performers), and link to Free Things to do in Denver this week, which mentions the open house and our involvement.
Voting is underway for a national competition that awards 10 winners $150,000 for preservation projects. Colorado’s project for this competition is the home of Dr. Justina Ford, Colorado’s first female African American, attributed to delivering over 7,000 babies in Denver’s Five Points Community. Voteyourmainstreet.org/denver will take you the website collecting votes, and the winners will receive $150,000.
Any assistance you can provide in letting folks know about this great opportunity would be wonderful.
