The Dream Lives On:
A Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra will present a free community tribute concert on Saturday, January 14, 2012 at 3:00 pm at the Holy Redeemer Institutional Church of God in Christ, in Milwaukee.
Music Director Richard Hynson will conduct, and church founder Bishop Sedgwick Daniels will narrate the performance.
The Dream Lives On will feature works for string orchestra including Dmitri Shostakovich’s heart-wrenching Chamber Symphony, as well as selections from Robert Ray’s Gospel Mass performed by singers from the Bel Canto Chorus of Milwaukee.
