New York's Harlem Gospel Choir shares its collection of blues, jazz, and gospel spirituals tonight in Cleveland, in a hand-clapping, foot-stomping tribute to black history. The chorus' Playhouse Square concert is one of the last Midwest stops before the 21-year-old ensemble goes on a musical junket next week to Ontario and Canada's maritime provinces. By late this year, the group will take its act to the Netherlands, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. Check them out at 8 tonight at the Ohio Theatre, 1511 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $15 to $35. Call 216-241-6000 or visit playhousesquare.org.
