Classical Roots: Journey of Faith

Join the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Classical Roots Community Mass Choir and Take 6 as they bring a blend of Gospel, Jazz, R&B and Pop to the stage. This annual celebration of African-American musical traditions includes classic repertoire as well as traditional and contemporary Gospel music led by conductor and composer Charles Floyd. After getting praise from big-time artists like Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald, it’s safe to say Take 6 is one of the most renowned vocal groups in history. And the Classical Roots Community Mass Choir, composed of singers from African-American churches across the Greater Cincinnati region, will also accompany the performance.

7:30 p.m. Friday. $25 adults; $10 students; $55 VIP. Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, cincinnatisymphony.org.
