Westminster is delighted to welcome back the South African Gospel Ensemble “29:11” in a weeklong residency from June 20-26. 29:11 International Exchange is a music ministry whose mission is to facilitate hope and reconciliation through musical performance and collaboration, artist development, and cross-cultural relationships. Co-founders Brendon and Gaylene Adams are based in Minneapolis, but have roots in South Africa. Each year, they gather a new group of young musicians from South Africa to tour to the United States, including performances at such venues as Orchestra Hall, Paisley Park, and the Dakota Jazz Club.
Their residency at Westminster will includes:
- Tue, Jun 21, 5:30pm | Westminster African Community Potluck Dinner
- Wed, Jun 22, 7-9pm | Choral Workshop (for all ages and abilities!)
- Fri, Jun 24, 7:30pm | 29:11 in Concert (Westminster Hall)
