This year’s Cincinnati Pops Classical Roots concert happens Friday, March 15 at Music Hall. This celebration of the musical contributions of African-Americans will feature conductor John Morris Russell, the incomparable Branford Marsalis, and the CSO Classical Roots Community Mass Choir featuring singers from over 30 area churches. John Morris Russell is in the studio with Mark Perzel to talk about the importance of this one-night only concert, and some of the unsung heroes they will be saluting.
