Trinity Presents The Spirituals Project Choir

November 13, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In 1998, The Spirituals Project was founded by Arthur C. Jones to preserve and revitalize the music and teachings of the sacred folk songs called “spirituals,” created and first sung by African Americans in slavery. The Spirituals Project is a past recipient of the Denver Mayor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. The Project has presented a wide variety of high-profile musical and educational programs over the years, including a national conference on spirituals in 2013 featuring poet Nikki Giovanni as keynote speaker, and a historic concert in 2009 at Denver’s Ellie Caulkins Opera House in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 80th birthday, featuring the renowned mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves as a guest artist. Most recently, in September 2018 The Spirituals Project Choir performed with renowned opera soprano Kathleen Battle as she presented her concert, “Underground Railroad: A Spiritual Journey” at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.

With the official transition of The Spirituals Project to the University of Denver, the multi-ethnic Spirituals Project Choir will present concerts in a variety of venues and will continue to present educational programs regionally and nationally.

Join The Spirituals Project for this unforgettable concert experience in one of Denver’s oldest and most beautiful venues, Trinity United Methodist Church. Trinity was founded in 1859, and the building was built in 1888. The 1100-seat sanctuary was originally designed for concerts and provides the perfect atmosphere for this performance.
