Door Community Auditorium (DCA) invites all singers and music lovers onto the DCA stage Feb. 19 to perform with Damien Sneed and his ensemble as they present We Shall Overcome, a musical celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.
Inspired by the words and action of Martin Luther King Jr., We Shall Overcome showcases repertoire from the African-American music traditions that electrified generations of civil-rights activists, interwoven with spoken word from King’s recorded speeches. Producer and Musical Director Damien Sneed has collaborated on major original works with Wynton Marsalis, accompanied Jessye Norman and toured extensively with Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and the Clark Sisters.
Choristers need not be advanced singers, merely enthusiastic participants. Experience with reading music is helpful but not a requirement. We Shall Overcome regularly partners with local choirs and singers in its performances.
Singers must be available for the 7 pm performance on Feb. 19 and a 4 pm sound check on Feb. 19, as well as one rehearsal. Rehearsals will take place Feb. 12, 7 pm, at DCA and Feb. 11 and 18, 5:30 pm, at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Institute. All choristers will receive free admission for themselves and one guest.
