On May 25, 2017, over 200 youth, guest artists, and performers lit up the Boch Center Wang Theater stage for the one night showing of Express Yourself’s annual performance, SOUL. This show was Express Yourself’s 23rd show at the Wang Theater and it was one of the most memorable to date. SOUL was a celebration of spirit, hope, and community across different eras and populations, bringing us all together to celebrate the achievements of our youth over the past year. With phenomenal set designs and electrifying performances, the theater was alive with soul and foot-stomping funk.
SOUL featured an array of special guest artists including Cammie Griffin and John Angeles from the STOMP national tour, Marcus Santos and Grooversity, the Joyspring Community Chorus directed by Jonathan Singleton, Nick Page, Toussaint Liberator, Ten31 Productions, and In The Makin’. We appreciate all of the work they have done with our youth throughout the year and the talent and energy that they brought to our performance.
As always, our show would not be the same without the incredible support from our audience who turned out in record setting numbers. Thank you for letting the light in!
