Singing Freedom

January 15-16, 2023

Singing Freedom explores the experiences of fugitives from slavery through a two-part project that utilizes Freedom on the Move—Cornell University’s database devoted to capturing “a multiplicity of voices and perspectives, each meditating on what it means to risk all to be free.” In collaboration with Sparks & Wiry Cries, PCMS presents a group of exceptional artists, composers, and poets who bring to life these voices that celebrate bravery and self-emancipation, highlighting stories of strength rather than stories of oppression.
