This week’s Music and Message will explore identity and spirituality with Alonzo Turner, winner of the 2019 United Methodist Ecumenical Campus Ministry’s Spiritual Writing Contest. Our musical guest will be Victor Provost, an incredible steel pan drummer.

Provost is widely regarded as one of the leading voices in steel pan drumming. With a strong foundation in Bebop, a contemporary sensibility, and deep roots in Caribbean music, he seamlessly melds and mixes genres. The Washington D.C. City Paper’s “Jazz Percussionist of the Year” six years running, his new recording Bright Eyes debuted at #5 on the iTunes Top 40 Jazz Charts and has been met with praise from The Washington Post, Downbeat Magazine, and Hot House Magazine, as well as artists and presenters.

There will be a reception and merchandise sale led by Team Guatemala. Team G is ending the cycle of poverty and illiteracy in Guatemala through the sale of handcrafted Mayan goods. Learn more about them and their organization Syracuse Enactus on the Team G website.

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.
