Gospel and symphony fans unite! Join us this year as The Cultural Arts Center pairs the Tribute Gospel Ensemble and the Richmond Symphony on the Sara Belle November Stage in this popular, annual concert series. The Tribute Gospel Ensemble is a Richmond based Gospel group out of First African Baptist Church, one of the oldest black churches in the region celebrating its 242nd anniversary in 2022. This choir was formed over 20 years ago by its dynamic music director, Ms. Michelle Lightfoot.  Tribute has opened for such talents as: Richard Smallwood; Smokie Norful, and Darryl Coley.  They have also been fortunate to share stages with the likes of Maurette Brown Clark, Sunday Best contestant Crystal Aikin and others. This group has successfully shared their songs of praise across the Eastern region and continue to celebrate all new opportunities and venues.
