Professor at North Carolina State University Dr. Jason Bivins will deliver a lecture on “The Lord is Heavy: Can Jazz and Religion Jam Together?” Bivins is a historian of religion in America and a lifelong jazz fan.

Grounded in a comparative study of music’s role in religion, the talk will look at jazz as a form of ritual, jazz as a new religious community, and jazz as mysticism.
