Sankofa: The Journey to At Last is an inspirational musical work with spoken word and dance that discusses the African-American’s journey to belonging. The music that will be performed will help paint the picture of the journey of the African-American from being enslaved to the hopeful state of At Last. In this work, you will experience music spanning from different genres including classical, spirituals, jazz, and arrangements of popular music performed by The Sam Bonds Chorale.


The Sam Bonds Chorale consists of musicians throughout the DMV area who love Sacred and Inspirational choral music and wish to maintain its legacy, as shown to them by Samuel L. E. Bonds.  The mission of the chorale is to help educate the community on the necessity and importance of Sacred and Inspirational Music. By inspiring patrons of the arts to experience music through a variety of concerts, recitals and other creative gatherings, we engage the audience both emotionally and mentally. The chorale works with arrangers and composers in an effort to workshop and premiere new works. It is important that the music of the past and the future have a voice in the present so that all music can be appreciated. The chorale also seeks to introduce different composers and compositional styles through the various works performed.
