The Cultural Arts Center at Disciples Church is the perfect space to hold the joyful grooves and otherworldly harmonies of Kings Return, an a capella “band of brothers.” This program intersperses their infectious vocals with a wide range of instrumental works—from Gershwin, Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian, and Antonín Dvořák—that each take inspiration from American spirituals and sacred music traditions.
