West Jersey Chamber Music Society

Closes its 2020–21 season with Journeying Together, a free live stream concert on Sunday, May 23 at 7:30 pm.

The West Jersey Chamber Chorale pairs spirituals from the African-American and European-American traditions of the 1860s. We explore the commonalities that led both communities on a journey to heaven.
The program includes arrangements by composers Moses Hogan, Alice Parker, Hall Johnson, and Jester Hairston, among others. The talented WJCMS singers, plus host Ivan Woods, will contrast the roots, characteristics, and themes shared among these musical traditions. Journey through mankind’s earthly struggles to the divine aspirations that unite us.
The Performers:
  • West Jersey Chamber Chorale
  • Ivan Woods, narrator
