ALL WE ARE SAYING

The power of music to galvanize a movement and inspire resistance is highlighted in two programs of music that reach across genre, historical context, and message.  

The Classical & Folk Program features George Crumb's Black Angels for string quartet backed by a live film mix, plus music by John Prine, Bob Dylan, and Dmitri Shostakovich.

The Songs Program includes music by Nina Simone, John Lennon, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Bruce Cockburn, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Marvin Gaye, and so many more.
