Hello friends! We are closing out the month with our final show of the season this Wednesday. On behalf of everyone here at GP, we would like to extend our gratitude to all of the fans, musicians, artists, poets, dancers and creatives who made this season possible. With eight cinematic concert experiences filmed on-location at historic spaces across Los Angeles, plus more than 20 intimate livestream TAKEOVERS recorded from artists’ homes, we hope we were able to provide you with some joy, reflection and hope during these difficult times.
presents VOICES OF CREATION
Grand Performances Heritage Square Series concluded last Sunday September 27 with a powerful uplifting performance from Soul and Jazz choir Voices of Creation
“When starting this endeavor,” explains Jimetta Rose, “I had a whimsical theory that I wanted to test and hopefully prove. I imagined that each one of us was most powerful and most present and able to lead when singing our soul’s truest note. You know the one planted in our hearts that we must boldly seek to find. I believe that that would make harmony more evident, and coexistence would be less painful, less full of this cacophony of misery… maybe by singing together we can learn to listen and blend our sharper edges with one another. Singing of our collective hopes for tomorrow, we can surely build days and ways of peace for our children and those to come.”
