The GSO Chorus will join with the partner choristers to form a tremendous voice ensemble to power the performance, which will present a range of music offerings from outbursts of spiritual joy to the exploration of social justice. Featuring the music of African-American composers, this concert constitutes the fourth installment in a multi-year and multi-ensemble series dedicated to American music. It includes the world premiere of Moonlight Waltz by the GSO’s own N. E. Wheeler, the Georgia premiere of Daniel Bernard Roumain’s Human Songs and Stories and the Georgia premiere of William Grant Still’s And They Lynched Him on a Tree.
