The cry for FREEDOM is a universal human response to tyranny. The history of the black experience in our county is now highlighted by a nationwide celebration of Black History each February. Ina concert featuring music by African-American composers and artists, the Philharmonic presents music that affirms the cry for freedom (Battle Hymn of the Republic), that demonstrates the extraordinary impact that black composers have had on American Music (William Grant Still, Florence Price, George Walker and Scott Joplin), and that honors Martin Luther King’s legacy.
Our featured Guest Artist will be world-renowned soprano Angela Brown, a long-time favorite of Philharmonic audiences, who appeared with the Phil many times before she became THE Angela Brown.
This performance will be recorded and available February 19, 2021 through February 24, 2021. Single tickets will be available for $10 beginning February 15, 2021.
