About This Show

Told through 33 expressive a capella spirituals and seven heart moving, rhythmic sermons, which represent the seven positions on the trombone, God’s Trombones brings a reconstruction era meeting house alive as the players recall chapters from their individual and collective spiritual journeys.

Johnson, composer of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” believed the trombone to be “the instrument possessing above all others the power to express the wide and varied range of emotions encompassed by the human voice.” This moving story will bring people to their feet in roof-raising renditions of familiar gospel standards.
