A Musical Celebration of Black History Month

Wednesday, February 27, 20197:30PM - Wednesday, February 27, 20198:30PM
At Jarman Auditorium
Organized by Department of Music

The Longwood Wind Symphony will be joined by local high-school musicians for a concert in celebration of Black History Month. One of the pieces to be performed is Of Our New Day Begun by Omar Thomas. The composer will visit the Longwood campus that day and then conduct the piece at the concert.

Based on the hymn “Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing,” the piece was written to honor the victims of the terrorist attack at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015. At the concert, the Wind Symphony will be joined by the bands from Prince Edward County High School and Fuqua School, both of which are directed by Longwood alumni.
