At the Met
Silas Farley, a member of New York City Ballet’s corps de ballet and a member of Redeemer West Side, has choreographed a world premier commission ballet for The Metropolitan Museum of Art called, "Songs From The Spirit."
The ballet is set to African-American spirituals and recordings of newly written songs by currently incarcerated or recently released men from San Quentin State Prison in California.
The event is free with museum admission, with several performances a day Friday through Sunday, March 8 to 10. Details at the Metropolitan Museum of Art website.
