WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Let Freedom Ringfeatures compositions by jazz artists who participated in the civic rights movement and shows how these works were tied to specific historic events. By telling the stories behind events such as Brown vs. the Board of Education, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s most famous speech "I Have A Dream," listeners discover how music can be used to send cultural and political messages of both protest and celebration. The concert is presented as a celebration of Black History Month, and features the music of artists such as Dave Brubeck, Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington performed by an outstanding group of talented musicians. Age Rating: Ages 5 to 13
