Event Description

Our December concert is a celebration of choral music by African American women, featuring Margaret Bonds's "The Ballad of the Brown King," which was a collaboration with Langston Hughes. The piece imagines the story of Balthazar, one of the three Magi, and was dedicated to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The chorus will also perform seasonal works by Florence Price, Zanaida Robles, Judith Baity, and Rosephanye Powell. Guest artists Jillian Tate (soprano) and Miles Wilson-Toliver (baritone) will perform solos in "The Ballad," as well as additional art songs by Margaret Bonds and Florence Price. Dr. Robert Steptoe, Yale Professor of African American Studies Emeritus, will read selections of seasonal poetry.
