March 8, 4:00 pm

Gospel Singer and pianist
Dubbed the “The Queen of Virginia Gospel Music”, singer and pianist Cora Harvey Armstrong has been delighting audiences for more than 40 years. Cora began taking piano lessons at the age of five, and performed gospel music with her sisters and mother as The Harvey Family. Since then, she has toured Europe and Japan, directed the VSU Gospel Chorale, and become an ordained minister. A perennial favorite at the Richmond Folk Festival, her return appearance at the ICA will feature a selection of gospel classics as part of Rashid Johnson’s “Monument”.
