Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration featuring Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz Center at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Chorale Le Chateau
Two decades ago, Mr. Marsalis began a creative exploration of how to reflect the forms of the African American church service onto a theme of universal humanism while raising “a joyful noise.” Mr. Marsalis refined this integration of sacred and secular in Abyssinian 200: A Celebration, commissioned by the Abyssinian Baptist Church in 2008. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis brings fresh eyes and ears to this masterwork, now called Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration!
