Concert Features New Jacqueline Hairston Ensemble

The New Jacqueline Hairston Ensemble is presenting a Carnegie Hall Preview Performance and Benefit Concert Sunday, Jan. 29, 4 p.m., at East Bay Church of Religious Science, 4130 Telegraph Ave. in Oakland.
Jacqueline Hairston, award-winning Bay Area composer-arranger, pianist, music educator and vocal coach, will be the guest conductor at Carnegie Hall in February where she will showcase her trademark choral arrangements of spirituals, including a world premiere of “Echoes of Jester Hairston.”
 The Bay Area preview concert includes all songs to be performed at Carnegie Hall and features preeminent soloists and the New Jacqueline Hairston Ensemble, composed of singers from Allen Temple Baptist Church, Dominion A Cappella Ensemble, East Bay Church of Religious Science, Inner Light Ministries of Soquel, CA, Oakland Center for Spiritual Living, Unity Palo Alto, and CSE San Jose.  
“Some people think they know the Spirituals, but we’re featuring different arrangements so the audience will learn a new approach, be lifted up, healed and inspired to learn more,” Hairston said.
Proceeds will support singers and musicians participating the performances in the Bay Area and at Carnegie Hall.  To make a tax-deductible donation, send checks or money orders payable to: Traveling Performing Arts Co., Box 55675, Hayward, CA 94545.
