Voices Rising

Voices Rising

Thursday, February 27 @7:30 PM
Worcester Center for Crafts
25 Sagamore Road, Worcester
Pre-concert talk @7:00 PM
Post-concert wine and dessert reception

The voices of five Black American composers rise as they are recognized and represented on stage and claim their places as vital contributors to the American musical canon. They rise in protest, pain, grief, joy, heartbreak, and more as they tell stories of the Black experience in America through their music.

In collaboration with Worcester Black History Project and including the art show I’ve Known Rivers: Black Americans and Labor
