Nelson, will lead the CSO Spiritual Ensemble on a musical journey honoring the spiritual—the historical musical form born of the suffering and endurance of African slaves in the South Carolina Lowcountry. In a setting surrounded by images of the past, this powerful performance will celebrate the unique, indigenous harmonies of the Lowcountry’s African American culture.
