A performance of music and spoken word crafted in memoriam

**THE CONCERT TODAY IS ON. Please join us for the hour long event.

Commemorating Martin Luther King’s life 50 years after his untimely death, five Boston composers have crafted compositions based on the words of Dr. King. This one-of-a-kind performance piece, presented to reflect the kind of service that Dr. King might have led as a minister, features music for soprano and string trio, spoken word, and poetic reflections.

As one of the greatest civil rights pioneers, preachers and orators of his time, his words remind us of the ongoing struggle for justice, peace, and the call to love. 

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
