For the 14th time – and the 13th consecutive year – I am honored to have been invited once again to speak the words of Dr. Martin Luther King in collaboration with the extraordinary musicians of the world renowned Philadelphia Orchestra. Thomas Wilkins is the guest conductor. The concert will feature works by Coleridge-Taylor, Duke Ellington and Composer-in-Residence, Hannibal. The choir of the High School of the Creative and Performing Arts will also perform. TICKETS ARE FREE – but you MUST HAVE a ticket to attend. General seating at the Girard College Chapel is on a first-come-first-served basis. Tickets (up to 4 per family) will be available on the orchestra’s website on January 9th. They go really quickly. House opens at 1pm.
