Celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King with Santa Monica Symphony’s annual MLK Weekend Concert!
All Santa Monica Symphony Concerts are FREE and open seating.
Opening the concert will be Aaron Copland's iconic Fanfare for the Common Man, followed by African-American composer Duke Ellington’s ambitious jazz composition, Black, Brown and Beige. After the intermission, award-winning Bass-Baritone soloist Cedric Berry will present Giacomo Puccini’s “Te Deum" from the opera Tosca. His narration of the remarkably lyrical and deeply affecting finale piece, New Morning for the World by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Joseph Schwantner will complete the afternoon performance. The concert will be at 2 pm on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the SGI Auditorium (525 Wilshire Blvd) in Santa Monica.
