Sacred Masterworks

Our Sacred Masterworks series will be virtual this season. Tickets for this performance will be available shortly.

A balance between familiar and new, this concert includes works by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) composers such as Rollo Dilworth, Ysaÿe Barnwell, Robert Nathaniel Dett, and David Baker. Featuring music from Western European, Eastern Orthodox, Jewish liturgical traditions, and one secular piece, this performance is not to be missed!
