Mission: To seek and share inspiration


Classical Roots


During its 16-year history, Classical Roots has grown from a small concert series in African American churches into a diverse, city-wide community of music lovers coming together to celebrate African American musical traditions. The Classical Roots community connects people of different backgrounds through an annual sold-out spring concert by the CSO and Classical Roots Community Mass Choir, joined by notable guest artists who embody the African American musical experience.
