Breaking Chains: Fueling Freedom with Protest Songs
Local composer, pianist, and professor, Krystal Folkestad Grant, will take us on a journey of songs of freedom in America. Expect some musical performance and not just a lecture. Expect some improvisation because you will have the chance to ask questions. Come to celebrate the liberating language of music, especially in the voices of the oppressed. Warning: singing could break out.
Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Grant is the Artistic Director of New Sounds Lancaster, a non-profit that showcases world-class, classically trained musicians performing music by living composers in casual listening atmospheres.
