Part of Hancher's Golden Anniversary Season

A Hancher commission

Due to visa-related issues, the choir will not arrive in the United States as early as was originally planned. As a result, the concert has been rescheduled to October 10, 2022.

HOPE: It’s Been a Long Time Coming commemorates and celebrates South Africa’s Freedom Movement and the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. The incomparable voices of this three-time Grammy Award-winning choir will once again bring joy and inspiration to the Hancher audience as they sing songs of liberation and justice that have moved generations of those invested in fairness and freedom.
