Hearing in Color: Spirituals & Justice

February 2 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Hearing in Color is a concert series aimed at highlighting music and composers who are often underrepresented in the larger musical world. Hearing in Color is dedicated to exposing our community to emerging artists, and shining light on cultural issues through the performance of music by composers of color. Hearing in Color believes in the power of music to comfort, embolden, and inspire in the face of subjugation and oppression.

This concert will highlight music of African-American composers who challenge and question racism, composed in spite of constant injustice, and who found shared spirituality among their community in the face of a dark world. We will hear stories often overlooked and untold. In an effort to heighten the empathetic view on the issues in our society, we will share messages of love, faith, and justice to educate and call our community to action!

*Free Will Donation + Light Refreshments Served*
