Rehearsals for an upcoming Black History Concert presented by the Wilson County Civic League were held on Monday.

Marilyn Bryant, an event promoter, said that concert will be held on Saturday, Feb. 21, at The Capitol Theatre in Lebanon.

Last year's inaugural Black History Concert featured the Princely Players and was also held at The Capitol. The ensemble's performance took concert-goers on a journey of the African American experience from slavery to the civil rights movement.

This year's show will be a musical theater production - Soul of Broadway. Bryant said Mitchell Vantrease is organizing the show, which is presented by the Civic League. She explained that the show will consist of musical numbers historically performed by African American cast members.

"This is a way of fulfilling part of our community service. We are able to offer a wonderful show locally," she said.

The Wilson County Civic League is currently seeking sponsorship. Bryant said last year's sponsors like Liberty State Bank, Hellum Funeral Home and Neuble Monument Funeral Home helped organizers keep ticket prices low.

"When our ticket prices are low, more people are able to come and enjoy the performance," she said.

Tickets will be available through the Wilson County Civic League. Follow them on Facebook or call 449-0719, for more information.
