Saturday, June 17, 2017
Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, 419 South Sixth Street
In honor of the Charleston Nine, this work for jazz trio, jazz trumpet, solo violin, vocalists (Janice Chandler-Eteme, Tiffany Godette and Roderick Dixon), narrators, and choir speaks to the sacredness of all life, the beauty of forgiveness, and the reconciliation necessary for healing common to all people. Everyone is invited to join in a Walk of Love from Weccacoe Park, the historic site of the Mother Bethel Burial ground dating back to 1810, to Mother Bethel prior to the concert, beginning at 6:00 PM.
This performance is free and open to the public with all seating general admission. Reserving a ticket does not guarantee admittance, as attendance is first-come, first-served.
Hannibal Lokumbe is the Music Alive Composer-in-Residence with The Philadelphia Orchestra. This event is made possible thanks to Carole Haas Gravagno and Music Alive, a national residency program of the League of American Orchestras and New Music USA.
