Week Nine :: Aug. 22–26

America’s Music with Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center

Musical and artistic expression is a key characteristic of being human. When it comes to our cultural identity, few things are distinctly American as our music, and jazz is America’s singular contribution to the arts. No music tells us more about ourselves as Americans — or as human beings.

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: America’s Spiritual Songbook

“From the theological and social evolution of liturgical hymns, to Spirituals and Gospel, to the ambivalent gospel of Motown, to the Jewish Chazzan, to the songs written by Jewish Americans inspired by African American Spirituals, America has not only embraced – but joyfully celebrated – the spirituality of music, and used it to bring an experience both exquisitely human as well as divine, both from and into human hearts, minds, and souls. In this week we explore the rich musical heritage of the American soul.”
