Ruth Hamilton was a world renowned contralto and proponent of the Negro spirituals. Ms. Hamilton passed away in 2001 and it was her desire for a community-based youth program to be created to preserve, educate and celebrate Black music and culture.
In 2022, Hamilton-Garrett Music & Arts will be celebrating Ruth Hamilton's Centennial and what was her vision for HGMAA.
Stay tuned for more information!
