Program

Hannibal Lokumbe
The Jonah People - World Premiere | Nashville Symphony Commission

 

Few artists have conveyed the Black experience in America as movingly and as powerfully as Hannibal Lokumbe. Skillfully bringing together jazz, blues, gospel, opera, orchestral and choral music, this legendary trumpeter and composer will premiere his most expansive and ambitious project yet, The Jonah People. Featuring a cast of six vocalists, nine actors, a full chorus, a jazz quartet and an African drumming ensemble, this monumental production will bring the community together in a celebration of music, artistry and Black voices.
