  • Wed April 8, 2015 
    • 7:30 p.m. - Annie Moses Band, gospel & bluegrass, in John and Alice Butler Hall
      The Annie Moses Band's innovative sound has delighted audiences around the world - in record breaking numbers of airings on PBS and on stages as diverse as Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.  Members of the band are mostly members of the same family and are no strangers to musical innovations.  The band weaves musical styles together into cinematic arrangements while virtuosic siblings bring Juilliard-honed chops to Nashville-styled music-making. Combining many genres of music into a style that unifies audiences, young and old, progressive and conservative, their music fuses gospel, jazz, classical, and roots music to create a dynamic concert experience. Annie Moses’ UD performance will feature sacred music as well as selections from their show, Rhapsody in Bluegrass. Vocalist Joshua Carswell joins the Annie Moses Band as special guest. UD Theological Seminary alum and banjo extraordinaire Edwin Lacy opens for the Annie Moses Band. www.anniemosesband.com
    • 6:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Pre-Show Lecture in Babka Theatre
      This special event will feature Annie Moses’ mother, Robin Donica Weaver, who recently released a Guideposts Book entitled The Song of Annie Moses: A Musical Quest, A Mother’s Gift.  She will speak on the inspiration and origin of the Annie Moses Band. Ms. Weaver will provide insights into her extraordinary journey to honor her musical roots and instill God’s wellspring of love in her children, recounting how one mother, born in mountain poverty and seclusion, developed her musical heritage, and then led her children, through hard work and spiritual development, to The Juilliard School and ultimately to the founding of the Annie Moses Band -- igniting a fire of purpose and spiritual excellence within them.
