Darnell Ishmel, bass-baritone & Andrew Jamieson, piano

Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 3:50 PM – 5:30 PM PT

Resonance @ First Church Berkeley UCC present acclaimed bass-baritone Darnell Ishmel and pianist Andrew Jamieson. Darnell and Andrew will present pieces that reimagine faith, presence, and community through sound, lyrics and technology. Over their years of collaboration, they composed a set of dramatic and highly original “social justice arias,” with African-American music, particularly spirituals, freedom songs as source material. They will share these compositions through collaborative recordings and telepresence, for a unique sonic and community experience.Half of your donations for this concert will go toward Darnell’s work with Notes from the Village, which “amplifies voices from within Michigan’s prison system.” The other half will help support our artists.
