Celebrating Black History Month with A Cappella Group Reverb

The Wilson Center’s African American Heritage Event Committee is pleased to invite you to an afternoon of live entertainment by the a cappella group Reverb.

Reverb is a Washington-area, award-winning a cappella vocal group who performs BLACK HISTORY IN HARMONY, a program created for K-12 students. Reverb sings along an historical timeline from 1619 to today, focusing on the struggle of African-Americans for equality while acknowledging the humanity of all people. Reverb also teaches Gospel/inspirational choral music to elementary school students. The Washington Performing Arts sponsors both programs.

Outside of the schools, Reverb sings an uplifting blend of R&B, Gospel and pop classics as well as original songs written and arranged by group members. Since its creation in 1991, Reverb has performed along the east coast and toured east and southern Africa, the Persian Gulf and the Caribbean.
