Gospel Song

The evening will demonstrate how improvisation in many forms of music can open up key dimensions of the Gospel and the Christian life. Through speaking and performance, the musicians will demonstrate the interplay of order and freedom, what it means to trust one another, work with a tradition, or play music in a way that is not driven by fear of going wrong.
