Enjoy old and new favorites during this special holiday concert. The two-part program amplifies messages of diversity and hope for this festive season. The Ballad of the Brown King, a Christmas cantata composed by Margaret Bonds in collaboration with poet Langston Hughes, opens the program. This multi-movement choral work focuses on Balthazaar, the “Brown King” of ‘We Three Kings” fame, who traveled to Bethlehem to witness the nativity scene. Holiday works composed and arranged by musicians of color round out this concert.
