We're working on the site to bring you updates on our 2017 season, Raise Your Hand, drawing attention to the school-to-prison-pipeline: the increasingly widespread trend of pushing children of color out of schools and into the penal and criminal justice systems. Raise Your Hand will feature a side-by-side orchestra of student musicians performing alongside professional musicians, and include guest speakers discussing topics within educational justice. With host and Artistic Director Terrance McKnight and conductor Roderick Cox. Featuring soloists Kelly Hall-Tompkins and Dr. Ashley Jackson and guests speakers. With music by Joseph Bologne,Teresa Carreño, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, William Grant Still, George Walker, and a world premiere by Evan Williams.
