Program

Civil Rights Through Song: A Choral History of Raleigh Through the Civil Rights Era - A performance featuring three distinct choral sections interspered with dance and spoken word narrative in order to celebrate the Civil Rights Movement of the late 1950s to early 1960s. One section will include choral music from the era sung by white Raleighites who would have been in the segregated Raleigh City School System at that time. The second portion will present musical works sung by African American Raleighites who would have been in the school system in that same era. The third portion will highlight today’s choral music sung by young people who are enrolled in today’s desegregated Wake County School System, including boys from The Raleigh Boychoir and girls from the same age group. The evening will conclude with a joint performance by all three choirs.
