Event Details

One Voice Mixed Chorus kicks off their 2017 season on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend with Out of the Shadows, a concert honoring the work of African-American artists and activists. The concert also features the world premiere of One Voice’s largest commission ever, The Man Behind the Dream, a new choral work by composer Steve Milloy and Twin Cities-based librettist Vanessa German. This commission honors the life and work of gay civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, a mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, who was pushed to the margins of the movement due to his sexuality. The Man Behind the Dream is a multi-movement piece set for chorus, spoken word, soloists and band, and is narrated by incomparable Twin Cities’ singer and actor, T. Mychael Rambo.
