After sell-out performances at the world famous Apollo Theater, Craig Harris' God's Trombones returns to the Berkshires in a stirring concert version at MCLA. God's Trombones is based on James Weldon Johnson's classic collection of poems that refigure inspirational sermons by itinerant African-American preachers. Craig Harris' interpretation looks to transcend the sectarian roots of the sermons and focus on the spirituality that moves all religious experiences.

"Harris is a throwback to the days when brass players made their
instruments speak." - The Philadelphia Enquirer
