"Walk Together", African American Composer Initiative 2015 Concert [Select Date from Drop-Down Menu]
In our 2015 concert, entitled "Walk Together", the 50th anniversary year of the passage of the Voting Rights Act, we pay homage to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the courageous  civil rights activists, from youth to the elderly,  whose efforts changed our nation. We will perform spirituals that reflect Dr. King's ideals of equality, justice, and peace, as well as music composed in his honor by Valerie Capers, Lena, McLin, and Joshua McGhee.  

Our core group of performers will include soprano Yolanda Rhodes, vocalists/pianists LaDoris Cordell, Deanne Tucker, clarinetist Carol A. Somersille, keyboardist Jansen Verplank, pianist Josephine Gandolfi (Picasso Ensemble), violinist Susan C. Brown (Picasso Ensemble), and cellist Victoria Ehrlich (Picasso Ensemble)

Guest artists will include the incomparable Valerie Capers (piano,) John Robinson (bass,) Jim Kassis (percussion,) John Worley (trumpet,) and Rufus Olivier III (bassoon,)  along with the Eastside Choir under the direction of David Chaidez. This program of rich and varied music by African American composers spans the worlds of jazz, spirituals, freedom songs, and art music.

There will be a reception immediately following the performance on January 25.
