Program Details

The “High 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.

Pure joy for my child to be part of a group where everyone is committed to doing their best!
