Voices of Liberation; The Emancipation Oratorio
No region more than Western New York, and no city more than Rochester, claims connection to the personalities, ideas and energy that made freedom real for millions of our citizens. Join us in commemorating and celebrating the 150th anniversary of the abolition of slavery with the world premiere of Geneseo composer Glenn McClure's "The Emancipation Oratorio". Commissioned by the ROS, McClure's work rewrites the slave trade story, transforming a system of oppression into a world of opportunity, creativity and hope. Folk music, texts and instruments from the U.K., from Ghana, and from our own region inform McClure's original music. Kenyan born soprano, Jackline Madegwa pairs with baritone and international star, Lawrence Craig, in a piece that will become a staple for choirs across the country.
