Let Freedom Sing Concert #2
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
21 Jan 2008
Urban and suburban choral ensembles will join forces to present “Let Freedom Sing” in Pittsburgh and Murrysville on January 19 & 21, 2008 in celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Proceeds from the concerts will benefit the “Build the Dream” project to construct the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

In keeping with Dr. King’s philosophy and beliefs, this event will celebrate “community & diversity” when suburbs and city neighborhoods come together as one community in an evening of musical celebration, narration, and tribute.

Nationally recognized performing artist Vanessa German will narrate the event. The concerts will be conducted by Rev. Dr. Herbert Jones, national officer of the Gospel Music Workshop of America. Collaborating with Dr. Jones in organizing the concert events is Kris Rust, director of choirs at Franklin Regional High School.

Each invited group will perform individually in the first half of the concert, and will come together as one chorus in the second half to perform three selections, accompanied by string orchestra and the GMWA instrumental ensemble.

Let Freedom Sing participants include:

African American Music Institute Boys’ Choir – Pittsburgh
St. James AME Church Choir – Pittsburgh
Franklin Regional High School Choirs – Murrysville
Sixth Mt. Zion Baptist Church Choir – Pittsburgh
Dr. Sheila L. Johnson & “Young People For Christ” - Penn Hills
Rev. Deryck Tines & The OneVoice Choir – Pittsburgh
Western Pennsylvania Region Chapter Choir of the Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA) - Beaver Falls
