Singing Freedom

January 15-16, 2023

During the 2022-23 season, our Singing Freedom project explored the experiences of enslaved people through a two-part concert centered on 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 presented a group of exceptional artists, composers, and poets who honor and illuminate these voices that celebrate the bravery of freedom seekers, highlighting stories of strength rather than stories of oppression.
