“…Lift Ev’ry Voice wasn’t written just to empower and/or encourage a group of people who are constantly oppressed and dehumanized. It is also a bold statement of present-day victory.” —Zanaida Stewart Robles
SD Master Chorale premieres a virtual choir performance of Zanaida Stewart Robles’s powerful arrangement of beloved civil rights anthem “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” featuring Robles as soprano soloist. Robles will also discuss her work and the history of the piece in conversation with Music Director John K. Russell.
