The Bushwick Book Club Seattle has teamed up with the Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble and Eric Lane Barnes to present original music inspired by The Old Testament.
10 Songwriters have written 10 new songs based on 10 stories form the Bible’s Old Testament. SJCE took these songs and arranged them for a 7-piece band and chamber choir. At the end of March, all this comes together to bring you an evening of song, comedy, and theater, re-imagining stories from one of the oldest, influential, and controversial books we know.
This community project involves the work of over 30 artists and reflects a wide range of music and arts found in Seattle – it is an ambitious project. The goal is to provide audiences with a meaningful, high quality, multidisciplinary experience and an opportunity for artists that normally don’t work together a chance to collaborate.
