"I Have a Dream": the Martin Luther King Concert

  • This location is shown only to members

Each year the Santa Monica Symphony dedicates its January concert to Martin Luther King, Jr. and includes music by great African-American composers. This year the orchestra will play Lee Hoiby's powerful "I Have Dream" for Baritone and Orchestra and Hailstork's Three Spirituals for Orchestra and his Fanfare on Amazing Grace.

The concert, presented every year since 2007, honors Dr. King's legacy and features composers, works and soloists from Southern California who represent "Voices from Different Communities." These concerts provide a unique civic forum that aims to realize the broader inclusiveness set forth by Dr. King. The concert does so by programming compositions by minority composers, both contemporary and historic, and by promoting the careers of under-represented minority classical musicians by presenting them as soloists. The concerts end with "We Shall Overcome." This concert is given in association with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Westside Coalition.
