Music: Sun Jan 15

Martin Luther King Sunday is commemorated with music associated with African-American musical traditions. At CUUC. The Choir is at hand with a setting of a traditional Spiritual, as well as Amy Bernon’s inspirational “I Am the River. Music connected to African-descended cultures in arrangements for solo piano by the British-born Samuel Coleridge-Taylor are featured during the Prelude. May Aufderheide was perhaps the leading female composer of rags, and her “Dusty” Rag is the morning’s Offertory. Read on for programming details.
