Alsop opened the orchestra's 13th season with 16 selections from Duke Ellington's Sacred Concerts. These selections showed the variety of styles Ellington yoked together in a celebration of faith that allows entertainment and devotion to mingle freely. Classic 1940s dance band moves sit comfortably beside introspective blues and full-throttle gospel. Instrumental and vocal virtuosity share the spotlight with supple, graceful choral and ensemble writing.
