A second performance will take place at 3:00 pm.

In this interactive performance by Young Audiences of Houston teaching artists Hope Shiver and David Keepman, of “Voices from the Past,” journey through African-American history via popular musical styles.

Shiver’s husband, actor and musician David Keepman, provides musical accompaniment, and together they form the musical storytelling duo of Voices from the Past.

Made possible by a grant funded by Young Audiences of Houston, the performance is suitable for families with children in grades 1 through 5.
