NOV 2 + 3, 2019


No admission charge. Reservations requested.

An uplifting concert for justice and peace, honoring the many voices of Boston and highlighting those of the Jewish and black communities.

“This year we’re shoring up focus on two important communities in Boston. Framed by so many forms of scrutiny and persecution, the Jewish community and the Black community live actively in the public consciousness for the senseless painful and violent actions that are visited upon them daily. But since music is a force that communicates and reinforces the will of a people, we’d like to remind everyone of the resilience, and brilliance of these communities reflected through some of their music from as early as the 17th century to modern times. Let this remind us all to keep this culture and beauty present as a part of the current narrative, as much as the pain experienced by these communities.”

– Reginald Mobley, director and countertenor
