Abyssinian Mass

Lunch and Jazz Finale

Tuesday, April 9 - 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This month will include a live performance of a jazz ensemble of faculty and students from University of North Carolina School of the Arts at 11 a.m. followed by the Abyssinian Mass from the Jazz at Lincoln Center at 11:45 a.m. 
The worlds of Gospel Music and Jazz have always shared a close bond.

This series has been a collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center, the High Point Public Library and the High Point Museum. This month is in conjunction with the JAM (Jazz Appreciation Month) in High Point and the High Point Arts Council.
