'Celebrating America', an evening of dance, song & testimony at The Washington, DC Visitors' Center

KENSINGTON, MARYLAND -- Celebrated perfomer and producer Heather Hart headlines an evening of inspiring dance, music and the spoken word, entitled "Celebrating America" on Saturday, February 23rd at 7 p.m. at The Washington, DC Temple Visitors' Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Heather Hart is a graduate of BYU's Musical Dance Theater Program. At BYU, she was part of their renowned song-and-dance troupe, The Young Ambassadors. She recently produced an original work, "The Fullness of Times" for the Ashburn, Virginia Stake.

"Celebrating America" is a tribute to the divine origins and diversity of the United States, integrating the Northern Lights Orchestra, select choirs of adult and children's voices, soloists and dance interpretation. In a special performance dedicated to Black History Month, soloist Samantha Harris will pay a special musical tribute to the contributions of African Americans to our nation's history.

The event is free and is open to the public and we invite all to come. Those attending should arrive early as seating is limited to the capacity of the main theater and cannot be guaranteed.

Incidentally, the Mark E. Mitchell Collection of Afircan American History is currently on display at the Visitors' Center and is being viewed by overflow crowds. In the past three weeks, news of this exhibition at the Visitors' Center has run in "The Washington Post", the Associated Press, "The Washington Afro-American" newspaper, NBC, ABC, and CBS news, the Journal and Gazette newspapers, and on WTOP radio. If you have not yet brought your friends to the Visitors' Center to see the historic collection of 400 years of Black history, come early before "Celebrating America" and enjoy this groundbreaking exhibit.
