Potpourri of the Arts has expressed the soul of African American performances since 1993 and will present a celebration of Black music and dance through "In the African American Tradition" 8 p.m Nov. 11 in the IU Auditorium.

Potpourri of the Arts consists of three ensembles: the African American Choral Ensemble, the African American Dance Company and the IU Soul Revue, according to the IU Auditorium website.

Following the African American Dance Ensemble will be the African American Choral Ensemble, according to the IU Auditorium website. According to the African American Arts Institute's website, the African American Choral ensembles continue the legacy of African American choral music through their performances.

According the IU Auditorium website, attendees can expect folk songs, African American spirituals and gospel. 

IU Soul Revue, an ensemble of male and female vocalists, a horn line and rhythm section, will close the show, according to the IU Auditorium. The group will perform post WWII Black popular music, which includes funk, rhythm and blues, soul and contemporary styles of music.
