With a decrease in cases, and much of Massachusetts relaxing COVID restrictions, TCAN has suspended proof of COVID-19 vaccination as a requirement for entry. Masks are still strongly encouraged for all patrons, but are not required.

This event will take place at the Keiter Center at Walnut Hill School for the Arts.

The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music.
