CCJO Big Band: We Gotta Shout!

Date: Friday, July 7, 2017
Time: 7:30-9:30pm
Location: Memorial Hall (Cincinnati, OH)

We Gotta Shout! will pay tribute to a memorable moment where the worlds of gospel and jazz came together for a March 1963 recording that joined the legendary Dukes of Dixieland with Clara Ward and Her Gospel Singers. This landmark recording has never been performed for a live audience and will include 11 contemporary versions of the gospel songs on the record arranged by Eric Lechliter.

The CCJO will be joined by vocalists representing over a dozen church choirs from around the Tri-State. Leading the ensemble will be Adrian Cunningham. Adrian serves as the minister of music at New Jerusalem Baptist Church and has previously led rehearsals for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Classical Roots concert Community Mass Choir.
