Andrew Jamieson, a 2006 Oak Park and River Forest High School graduate, will present his avant-gospel chamber opera project “Heaven Down Here,” on June 25 and 28 at 8 p.m. at First Congregational Church of Oakland.

The performance will mix avant-garde and experimental improvisation with traditional songs of black gospel tradition and the Pentecostal church.

“Heaven Down Here” is Jamieson’s second chamber opera. He wrote and presented his first opera, “Goldsmith of the Kingdom,” at Northwestern University in Evanston while he was a student there.

Tickets to “Heaven Down Here” are $10 and $20.
