Don Byron New Gospel Quintet

This event has ended.

A master interpreter of a variety of genres, Don Byron has worked in an astounding range of musical contexts. His latest project, the Don Byron New Gospel Quintet, is informed by Byron’s in-depth studies of gospel music, particularly the songs of Thomas A. Dorsey. In his words: “I am combining my own compositions with traditional Gospel pieces in a way I have not attempted before.” The result is a joyous, profound, and affecting musical experience.
