Shades of Yale

  • Ashé Powerhouse Theater 1731 Baronne Street New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)

Free and Open to the Public.

We are excited to announce that Shades of Yale University will perform at the Ashé Power House. Shades is a co-educational a capella group founded to celebrate music of the African Diaspora, with an objective to offer a unique, musically excellent, and spiritually enriching performance experience at Yale University and beyond. Drawing from the diverse backgrounds of the members and the oral traditions of blacks in America, Shades strives to authentically portray the true depth and complexity of the black experience. In addition to mastering their style of music, they develop an appreciation of its history and roots in order to educate audiences about their music's lineage.

They acknowledge and accept that they are endowed with both the responsibility and the privilege of giving a voice to the voiceless, and aim to do so through the richness of their repertoire with its power to inspire and unite. More information on Shades can be found at shadesofyale.org
