Performance Details

Join us for a live conversation with Hannibal, as he discusses his composition Healing Tones.

The narrative of the piece evokes a brutal, shameful side of American history, but its message is also very much for our own time. Hannibal notes that “men whose hearts are strangers to love now wield enormous power over the lives of the people.” He hopes through this work to show that the communal forces of peace and freedom, once organized, can overthrow the tyranny of oppression. “Each note of the composition addresses such issues,” he continues. “There is a great price paid for each note, and a gift received as well.
