Music by African American composers, featuring Gospel Mass by Robert Ray
The Chorale devotes an entire concert to music of black composers for the first time, performing a wealth of rarely performed motets and anthems written by black composers. In many cases, these are the same composers who are better-known for their spirituals and gospel pieces.
[This performance has been postponed due to concerns about COVID-19. The concert will take place in the fall at a date to be determined.]
With guest Anders Åstrand, percussionist and composer, Stockholm, Sweden
A mesmerizing evening of Scandinavian choral music featuring guest composer and musician Anders Åstrand. He will use improvisation to musically connect the pieces in an hour of uninterrupted music. Joining us for the third time, Åstrand is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
