Cyrus Chestnut: The Saga of the Cross
Baltimore native, Howard University professor, and pianist Cyrus Chestnut is known for swinging us right to church, and his talent for mixing jazz, spirituals, hymns, and down-home blues is apparent in his most recent composition. On Good Friday, the Concert Hall transforms for The Saga of the Cross, Cyrus’s large-scale service complete with gospel choirs, African drum troupes, jazz ensembles, a full pipe organ, and more. It’s a celebration of community, of African American culture, and of a D.C. jazz master.
