Nathaniel Dett Chorale



The classically trained, 21-member Nathaniel Dett Chorale has performed for some pretty important peeps. In addition to singing their hearts out at the Canadian embassy on the day of President Barrack Obama's inauguration, the chorale has also performed at events honoring Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Muhammad Ali. Named after the internationally renowned African-Canadian composer R. Nathaniel Dett (1882-1943), this Toronto-based classical, spiritual, gospel, jazz and blues group is on a mission to become "the premier performer of Afrocentric composers, past, present and future."

On Sunday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m., the Nathaniel Dett Chorale will pile into St. Michael's Episcopal Cathedral in Boise for a special show in honor of Black History Month. Tickets for the performance can be purchased at the door or by calling the St. Michael's Cathedral office. Superbowl-shmuperbowl.

Sunday, Feb. 7, 7 p.m., $5 students and children, $10 seniors, $15 adults, St. Michael's Cathedral, 518 N. Eighth St., 208-342-5601,
