Save the date for an evening with the vocal duo - Alfreda Burke and Roderick Dixon.
Here’s a preview of that evening:
Too Hot to Handel The Jazz-Gospel Messiah - with Alfreda Burke and Roderick Dixon
Burke and Dixon were both raised on church gospel, have been singing around the world for more than 20 years, and have performed on Broadway and at Carnegie Hall. Pianist Matt Long will accompany the duo that evening as they talk (and sing through) a compare and contrast of both the classic and Jazz-Gospel Messiah versions.
Come see and hear(!) the sights and sounds of Burke and Dixon.
Too Hot to Handel - The Prison Ministry
How did we bring this musical production to Illinois prisons? And, what happened at those locations?
Reps share experiences and talk about “what’s next?” for the Jazz-Gospel Messiah.
Concert: This year the jazz version of Handel’s Messiah takes place at the Auditorium Theater on Saturday and Sunday, January 19 and 20, 2019. You’ll be able to sign up for tickets that evening.
