154 Years of Music & Culture in Central Massachusetts!
Wynton Marsalis was commissioned in 2008 to write a piece for the bicentennial of the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem. This incarnation of the opus that emerged embraces a celebration of life, humanity, and love, uniting musical traditions from across centuries and continents. Performed with the 70 piece Chorale de Chateau and the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra, the Abyssinian Mass must be experienced to be believed. Wendell Pierce hosts.
