We Shall Overcome: A Celebration Of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. -Wednesday, Feb 19, 2020 7:30PM - Victoria Theatre

We Shall Overcome: A Celebration Of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Inspired by the words and action of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., this stirring production ties together a living lineage of music and culture that includes gospel, classical, jazz, Broadway and spirituals – from Aretha Franklin to Wynton Marsalis, from Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder, from Nina Simone to Donny Hathaway, from traditional spirituals and music from The Wiz. African-American music traditions that electrified generations of civil rights activists and defenders are interwoven with spoken word from Dr. King’s recorded speeches.

Producer and Musical Director Damien Sneed’s broad experience across styles and genres brings everything together in a night of remembrance and celebration. Sneed has conducted and collaborated on major original works for Wynton Marsalis, regularly accompanied Jessye Norman, collaborated with Lawrence Brownlee, and toured extensively with Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and The Clark Sisters.
