Canon for Racial Reconciliation

Cappella Romana

Isaac Cates & Anthony Maglione
Guest Conductors

Experience a groundbreaking fusion of traditions with the world première of the complete Canon for Racial Reconciliation for choir and gospel instrument ensemble.

Isaac Cates (Gospel music) and Nicholas Reeves (Orthodox music) co-composed an unforgettable score to African American Carla Thomas’s poem that takes the form of an ancient Byzantine canon.

Their composition weaves a tapestry of healing and hope, taking you on a journey from brokenness to reconciliation, bridging two traditions of sacred song. It’s more than music, it’s a movement.
