The world premiere of 5 pieces composed in memoriam

Commemorating Martin Luther King’s life 50 years after his untimely death, five Boston composers will premiere original compositions based on the words of Dr. King. This concert, presented to reflect an order of service, will feature 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.”
