Wondrous voices of Charleston Symphony Orchestra Spiritual Ensemble takes audience on faith journey

I could not help but be drawn to the recent Piccolo Spoleto performance of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Spiritual Ensemble. The theme was, "No Trouble at the River: The Perilous Story of the Underground Railroad." I wanted to learn more about spirituals from the old South and better understand our nation's history of the Underground Railroad, which played such an important role in aiding runaway slaves headed toward freedom.
