Theodicy Jazz Collective and Hendricks Chapel Choir present a program of sacred jazz, including the Canterbury Jazz Mass.
The Theodicy Jazz Collective was formed at Oberlin Conservatory in 2006 and grew during residency at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music from 2008 to 2012. The band creates and leads services for a multitude of churches and cathedrals from Los Angeles to London, Minnesota to Mississippi, and offers lectures and workshops at high schools and colleges including Oxford, Cambridge, and Yale Universities. Incorporating sounds from the traditions of jazz and gospel music and rhythms from Latin America and Africa, the music is a constant prayer, sometimes a shout of joy, sometimes a call to action, sometimes a cry for hope.
Join us as Hendricks Chapel unites the Malmgren Concert Series and Dean’s Convocation into a new weekly series that features musical performances and spoken reflection from a diversity of religious and spiritual perspectives. These inclusive gatherings bridge campus and community and seek to spark inspiration, peace and wellbeing for all.
