Sacred Jazz

Theodicy Jazz Collective returns to Hendricks Chapel to present the world premiere of their new “Jazz Freedom Suite” in collaboration with the Hendricks Chapel Choir. Supported by a prestigious grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Theodicy’s suite incorporates sounds from the traditions of jazz and gospel music and rhythms from Latin America and Africa. The group’s residency at Syracuse University includes making a studio recording of the new work with the Hendricks Chapel Choir.

Led by pianist Andrew Barnett, Theodicy has performed their unique blend of sacred jazz for liturgical and concert settings across the United States and Europe since 2006. In 2015, Canterbury Cathedral commissioned Barnett and fellow collective member saxophonist William Z Cleary to write the Canterbury Jazz Mass, a work Theodicy also presented with the Hendricks Chapel Choir during a residency in 2018.

Theodicy describes their music as “a constant prayer, sometimes a shout of joy, sometimes a call to action, sometimes a cry for hope.” Don’t miss this first performance of inspiring new music for eight-piece jazz band and choir!
