The Mid-Atlantic Symphony Teams up with Morgan State
Morgan State University presents The Freedom, Love & Light Project MOTHER'S LAMENT: Two new works by composer, James Lee III with poetry of Vincent Dion Stringer featuring Soprano Marquita Lister and Bass-baritone, Robert Cantrell.
This very special event is a multi-media tribute to families who have lost loved ones at the hands of violence in Baltimore City and across the nation. The Freedom Love and Light Project seeks to use creativity and artistry -- through music, poetry, and visual arts--to sooth the souls of community members who have experienced tragic loss.
Two new works for orchestra, chorus and soloists will be premiered: "Songs of Love and Loss" with guest soloist, Robert Cantrell (bass-baritone) and "Mother's Lament" with guest soloist, Marquita Lister (soprano) and Conductor Julien Benichou and the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra.
