Marsalis’ Abyssinian Mass, a landmark collaboration of jazz, gospel, instrumentation and vocals to be webcast for free live on wyntonmarsalis.org/live

Raise your voices and lift your hearts as the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Damien Sneed, and the 70-piece Chorale Le Chateau webcast live only Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration, an historic hand–clappin’, tambourine-slappin’ celebration scheduled to take place October 24th, 25th and 26th at 8PM ET.

On these unique performances, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Damien Sneed, and Chorale Le Chateau will perform Marsalis’ composition Abyssinian Mass, a landmark collaboration of jazz, gospel, instrumentation, and vocals. Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration will be performed live from Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater,

Since Marsalis composed and recorded In This House, On This Morning two decades ago, he has remained committed to projecting a theme of universal humanism — and raising a joyful noise — while reflecting the form of the African American church service. Never has Marsalis coalesced the codes of sacred and secular expression more successfully than with the 2008 extended work Abyssinian Mass, commissioned to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Abyssinian Baptist Church on West 138th Street in Harlem. Join in the celebration from anywhere in the world:
