Commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.|
On the evening of the 50 year anniversary of his death, the UC Alumni Chorus dedicates its spring concert to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We begin with a commemorative observance, led by local civil rights leaders Carl Anthony and James Peterson as well as Bay Area luminary Noah Griffin, who will share their personal reflections on the life and influence of Dr. King.
Following this we will offer choral tributes, including one honoring Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday, and featuring the oratorio SCENES FROM THE LIFE OF A MARTYR, composed by Undine Smith Moore, and narrated by Noah Griffin. Also featured will be selections arranged by Moses Hogan, Lisa Gutkin, Ben Allway, and Crawford Gates.
The concert, under the direction of Dr. Mark Sumner, will include four choruses and a full orchestra, with guest soloists, Michele Kennedy, Crystal Philippi, and Alex Taite.
Join us as we honor Dr. King, and civil rights leaders of the past century.
