Lenten Concert: The Life of Christ

Lenten Concert: The Life of Christ       Sunday, March 8, 2:30PM, Chapel

As part of your Lenten journey, join us for a concert this Sunday offering a different perspective of the life of Christ.

Tenor, Harv Wileman, and pianist, Roland Carter, will perform The Life of Christ, a song cycle of spirituals by Roland Hayes. Born just outside of Calhoun, Georgia, Roland Hayes (1887-1977) lived part of his early life in Chattanooga, was a member of the Fisk Jubilee Singers and went on to become one of the first internationally-famous, black concert singers. His The Life of Christ was the first piece of its kind as an extended solo cycle of spirituals, using arrangements of traditional African-American songs to tell the story of Christ from His incarnation through His boyhood, ministry, passion and resurrection. This program will include reconstructions by Mr. Carter of sections of the cycle that were performed and recorded by Mr. Hayes but never notated in his official publication of the work. The concert is free to the public.
