An African American Requiem

$15 – $69

Hailing from Portland, composer Damien Geter’s An African American Requiem, a musical response to violence against Black Americans, makes its east-coast premiere. The work infuses traditional Latin requiem with spirituals, modern declarations relating to racial violence, and responses to the murders of Eric Garner and other Black men at the hand of police. D.C. composer Nolan Williams, Jr.’s Spirituals Suite for Choir and Orchestra opens the show.
