Clerestory returns to its long-running and popular series of Americana concerts. Songbook II explores more of the rich body of popular American musical styles that Clerestory first visited in 2015. The singers will delve into African American spirituals, barbershop, folk songs, and jazz styles to showcase their energy, textual richness, and deep emotional expressivity. Timeless melodies from all these genres and more make up what is known as the Great American Songbook, and we are thrilled to share a second chapter with our audiences.
