Upon These Shoulders

Upon These Shoulders

THURSDAY, January 12, 2017 - 7pm
5:30 pm -  Pre-concert activities in the Carl Van Vechten Gallery
Fisk Memorial Chapel
PHILLIPS ST, Nashville, Tennessee

Intersection is honored to partner with Fisk University and Choral Arts Link to launch a new community celebration that honors the life of Dr. King and the many heroes of the Civil Rights Movement. Through music, spoken word and song we will recognize that while Dr. King was indeed the face of a great social protest, many people “orchestrated” strategies, meetings, sought resources and fought for justice. And, that these unsung heroes, worthy of celebration, were indeed the wind beneath Dr. King’s wings.

Arr. Dave Ragland: Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child

voices of Today

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 2017 at 7pm
Fisk Memorial Chapel
PHILLIPS ST, Nashville, Tennessee


Intersection will continue its partnership with Fisk University and Choral Arts Link with this program that gives voice to the cultural experiences of each composer and the communities they come from. For example, Jonathan Bailey Holland’s “His House is Not of This Land” refers to the speech patterns found in African-American Baptist Churches. Daniel Bernard Roumain’s “Fast Black Dance Machine” combines contemporary classical music with a multicolored spectrum of contemporary black popular music, blending flunk, rock, and hip-hop.

The dominant voices of classical music in the United States have limited diversity with an under-representation of African-American composers. Intersection and its partners are committed to creating a future that represents, promotes, and celebrates the diversity of voices of experiences creating music.  Intersection seeks to make an impact for musicians, composers, and audiences that will serve as a catalyst for broader perspectives and increased opportunities.
