CUUC Music: Sun Feb 28

The celebration of the incomparable musical contributions of African-Americans continues this Sunday, as part of our commitment to Black Lives Matter. Musical selections include a setting of a traditional Spiritual as a set of virtuosic piano variations by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, several rags by Scott Joplin, and works in a decidedly jazzy vein by Hale Smith and Valerie Capers. Dr. Capers herself will return to CUUC for our Mothers’ Day service on May 8 and then for a special Jazzfest! concert on Saturday evening May 14th. Read on for programming details.
