MLK & Black History Tribute Concert

The Music School of Delaware welcomed a bevy of guest & faculty artists on January 15th to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday and honor the contributions of other influential African Americans. The multi-genre performance featured Still’s “Panamanian Dances,” Benjamin’s “Jamaican Rumba,” and “Run, Joe,” made famous by Louis Jordan and Maya Angelou. Music of the Benny Goodman Sextet was honored in a 100th birthday celebration of guitarist Charlie Christian, and “The Chaconne Emancipated,” interspersed traditional spirituals with music of J.S. Bach, Lincoln’s “Emancipation Proclamation” and Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
