The β€œHigh Priestess of Soul” inspires our pioneering vocal ensemble. As Nina Simone was known to do, we bring together a broad range of styles, but are always steeped in gospel and folk traditions. Performing numerous original songs by director Cora Jackson, this soulful group uses harmony to explore American roots music.


We sat with jaws dropped and a warm heart listening to the vocal ensemble. Thank you!
