HYMNS AND ODES: A Concert by Jerome Ellis

The Brother In Elysium Books presents an evening and concert performance with the composer and improviser Jerome Ellis. Please join us for an intimate set of hymns and odes he’s written and inherited over the years. These are songs of praise—in praise of poetry, in praise of blackness, in praise of the earth, in praise of liberation and peace.

The performance will begin at 7pm. Admission to the concert is $10 (cash only at the door please) and includes a letterpress printed broadside of the program notes written by Jerome for this performance. The printed piece measures 13 x 19", and is printed from hand set type. Program notes can be read here.

A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to UNICEF.
