About the Event

Will Liverman joins forces with his collaborative partner Paul Sánchez for a live streamed recital featuring works by all African American composers. The program will include Damien Sneed’s 'I Dream a World', Margaret Bonds’ celebrated song cycle 'Three Dream Portraits' based on the poetry of Langston Hughes, 'Riding to Town' by Thomas H. Kerr Jr, and Robert Owens’ song cycle 'Mortal Storm'. The evening’s performance will conclude with the world premiere of composer Shawn Okpebholo’s new work 'Two Black Churches'. The work, a musical diptych of two poems by Dudley Randall and Marcus Amaker, explores the impact of two watershed moments in the American Civil Rights Movement—the Birmingham church bombing in 1963 and the Charleston church shooting in 2015.
