“Everyone prays in his own language.” The final concert of the season features an uplifting program of music from Duke Ellington’s ground-breaking Sacred Concerts. Along with the beloved musicality of Jay Fluellen and his ensemble, we will be inspired by two exciting new voices on the scene, soprano Brittany Rumph and baritone Shafiq Hicks, who in turn will be listening very carefully to the return of Choral Society favorite, original Ellington soloist DeVonne Gardner. We will also be joined by two guest choirs, the Intermezzo Choir, directed by Carrie Lessene, and the Philadelphia Community Mass Choir directed by Jay Fluellen.
