The Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir

When Julien Jouga was only 19, he founded a musical institution that would endure for more than half a century. Founded in 1950 and based out of Dakar, the company of 15 singers and four Sengalese-style drummers perform a huge variety of songs based in gospel traditions, the indigenous polyphonies of their homeland, and solemn Gregorian chants. Audience members may recognize a number of the hymns and gospel songs, such as “Amazing Grace” and “The Storm is Passing Over,” but the repertoire expands far beyond that niche. The Choir also sings original compositions by Jouga—who wrote in the four official languages of Senegal—and combines Catholic liturgy with Muslim songs heard at Dakar mosques. Audiences might also get to see Senegalese dance and instruments such as the kora.

State Theatre

The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from “the ravages of time.” Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue’s signature dome.
