Music can heal. That’s the thinking behind a new concert by the Sacramento Master Singers.
The choral group will perform “Love Heals: Songs of Hope in Trying Times" Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19 at First United Methodist Church in Sacramento.
Featuring performances of Cyndi Lauper’s "True Colors," Frank Ticheli's "Earth Song" and "Glory," the Oscar-winning song from the movie “Selma.”
The program will also premiere new songs specifically commissioned for the concert by world-renowned composer Ken Medema.
Sacramento writer and spoken word artist Laura “immoBme az.i.B.we” Cook is a featured poet and performer in one of his compositions, “Black Lives Kyrie.”
We’ll talk with Ralph Hughes, artistic director of the Sacramento Master Singers, about the concert, and we’ll hear from Medema and Cook on what it was like to work together on “Black Lives Kyrie.”
