Boston Conservatory Orchestra celebrates Black History Month at Symphony Hall with a powerful program featuring historically important African American composers William Grant Still (“Festive Overture”) and Margaret Bonds (The Montgomery Variations), as well as a recent work by Valerie Coleman (“Seven O‘Clock Shout”) that was inspired by frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the heart of the performance, acclaimed scholar, attorney, and author Anita Hill will recite the words of Martin Luther King Jr. in Joseph Schwantner’s “New Morning for the World.” The program will conclude with Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s “Toussaint L’Ouverture,” debuting long-lost parts recreated by conductor Bruce Hangen, specially for this performance.

Venue: Symphony Hall Boston, 301 Massachusetts Ave, 02115, Boston, MA.
