"A Joy-Filled Noise" fills Timucua Arts for two nights

Timucua Arts Foundation marks the end of Black History Month strong with the return of the program “A Joy-Filled Noise.”

Helmed once again by musical director Kevin Harris, this “musical celebration of Black history” promises a survey of Black-innovated songforms including South African hymns, African American spirituals, jazz, blues, gospel and beyond.

Harris will lead an A-list ensemble of area musicians and a choir through original arrangements of music spanning decades and continents for two nights only.

7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24 and Sunday, Feb. 26; Timucua Arts Foundation, 2000 S. Summerlin Ave.; timucua.com; $7.50.
