Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts presented by the Boulder Chorale

Mark you calendars! My husband, David Sharp, is an inspiration to me as he shares his creative gifts in the world on his journey through life. He recently was invited to bring his tap dancing to a special event with the Boulder Chorale. Check it out:

The Cotton Club Goes to Church with special guests Joslyn Ford-Keel, vocalist, and Dr. David Sharp, tap dancer.

May 19, 2018, 7:30 PM & May 20, 2018, 4 PM
First United Methodist Church
421 Spruce Street, Boulder

Duke Ellington considered his three “Sacred Concerts” from the mid-1960s “the most important thing I have ever done.” While not trying to compose a mass, the concerts have been referred to as Ellington’s attempt to bring the Cotton Club to the church. We will bring our 110 voices, vocalist Joslyn Ford-Keel, tap dancer Dr. David Sharp, and a jazz sextet to this end-of-the-season celebration of one of America’s greatest composers.

In his own words, David says, “I’m 61 years old and still growing. I’m still a powerful instrument for alternative forms of ministry. Spirituality is not confined to set modes and patterns. I see tap dancing as a form of prayer, and I use it to teach people about life and to make peace with the uniqueness that they are.”

You don’t want to miss this extraordinary performance! Let me know if you buy tickets so we can sit together!

I will close with these inspiring words from St. Hildegard:

Invisible life that sustains ALL,
I awaken to life everything
in every waft of air.
The air is life,
greening and blossoming.
The waters flow with life.
The sun is lit with life.
The moon, when waning, is again
Rekindled by the sun,
Waxing with life once more.
The stars shine,
Radiating with life-light.
ALL CREATION IS GIFTED WITH THE ECSTASY OF GOD’S LIGHT.

Come and experience the ecstasy of God’s light with me and David on May 5th!

In Viriditas,
Jeannine
