The tribute to Dr. King was wonderful. I enjoyed the four negro spirituals in the beginning best of all. It was filled with beautiful voices, colorful dancers, and the orchestra was excellent. The Symphony Center was filled and the spirit of Dr. King was alive through song and dance.

Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 Chicago Sinfonietta’s annual tribute concert to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is a celebratory mix of spirituals, dance, and Beethoven’s majestic Ninth Symphony. Maestro Paul Freeman opens the tribute to the legacy of the visionary leader with Faure’s serene masterpiece and follows with the power of spirituals and their deep well of faith.
