The Nathaniel Dett Chorale is performing at Ithaca College and as part of the Oneonta Concert Association series this week.  They are Canada’s first professional choral group dedicated to Afrocentric music of all styles, including classical, spiritual, gospel, jazz, folk and blues, and was named in honor of the late-19th-century composer and musicologist Nathanial Dett.  We talked with conductor Brainerd Blyden-Taylor who was in Toronta before the Chorale started their tour.
