Soul Sounds, Loretta Giles Bring Music to Penn State Altoona

February 14, 2003

Penn State Altoona has rescheduled the performance of Soul Sounds, who were scheduled to appear on campus last week and were forced to cancel due to weather. Their performance has been rescheduled for Monday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. in the Wolf-Kuhn Theater on campus. Soul Sounds is a unique live performance and visual multimedia program that takes a "hip trip" through the evolution of black music. The music continues three days later, when mezzo soprano Loretta Giles, accompanied by Raymond Jackson, performs in the Wolf-Kuhn Theater on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. Giles and Jackson will present an evening of music from the Spanish and African American Musical Heritage. Giles has performed both nationally and abroad for more than two decades, receiving critical acclaim as a singing actress. Jackson is a professor of music at Howard University. He has performed in numerous recital halls including the Kennedy Center and the National Gallery of Art. Both programs are free and open to the public and are offered as part of the College's 2002-2003 Performing Arts Series.
