Songs of Hope: Unveiling Darkness

Lynnsey J. Lambrecht — Rescued
Traditional — I Don’t Feel Noways Tired (arr. Jester Hairston)
With social justice issues, reality is not as simple as we might want to believe. The project Songs of Hope: Unveiling Darkness dives into uncomfortable, but important, issues pervading our society today with the intentions of sharing stories about some of the world’s dark injustices through music and visual arts. This multi-media concert is centered around a live musical performance featuring stories and artwork from four social justice categories: marginalized youth, undocumented immigrants, refugees, and human trafficked victims. Moments of speaking are intertwined with the music to give the audience background information, and statistic.
The goal of this project is for the message to be shared in order to foster awareness among the general populace, with the hope that knowledge will lead to change. Moreover, relationships with local & national agencies offer avenues for the public to learn how they can engage in an area where they are passionate.
Part of the Sylvia Adalman Faculty Recital Series.
This performance is free and open to the public. It will also be livestreamed.
