CSO Spiritual Ensemble at Piccolo Spoleto

  • Friday, May 23, 2014

The CSO Spiritual Ensemble, a 30-member vocal group focusing on traditional African-American spirituals, joins Piccolo Spoleto on Saturday, May 31, at 7 p.m. with a performance entitled Spiritual Masterworks: From Robert Nathaniel Dett to Moses G. Hogan.

This choral performance will chronicle the musical legacies of Robert Nathaniel Dett, Hall Johnson, Jester Hairston and Moses G. Hogan, with a Charleston debut performance of Dett's “Chariot Jubilee.” Known for his intricate choral arrangements, Dett's “Ordering of Moses Oratorio” and “Chariot Jubilee” are noted around the world as extremely challenging to perform, such that few professional or community choirs perform them.

A giant in the classical world, Dett gained attention during his tenure at historic Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia. His orchestral and organ works are rarely performed in the United States but are celebrated staples in Canada and Europe.

The concert will take place at St. Philip's Episcopal Church, 142 Church St., in downtown Charleston.

Tickets are $21 for adults and $11 for children or students with ID. Tickets can be purchased online at www.piccolospoleto.com, by phone at 866-811-4111 or at the door (cash or check only) up to one half hour before each performance.
