With special guest conductor, composer, and writer Alice Parker.
Fifty years ago, on April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr., an icon, a leader, a transcendental figure, and a good and decent man, perished in a way no one should ever perish: killed by a cowardly bullet. Alice Parker, one of the most admired figures in the world of choral music, joins Artistic Director Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez, the Musica Viva NY choir and the Aeolus Quartet in this special celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. King.
