Wade in the Water

February 2012

No music inspires and moves us like the Spiritual.  Mighty and life-affirming, their profound and uplifting message points the way toward a world of justice and love.  Hear the world premiere of our new commission from Grammy Award-winning arranger Joseph Jennings, plus the premiere of artistic director Jonathan Miller’s Old Testament Spirituals, at this moving and jubilant new concert.
