Student Matinee: WITNESS Young People’s Concert Eyes Still on the Prize (Livestream/On-Demand)

February 21, 2025 - February 28, 2025


VocalEssence joins forces with a collective of Twin Cities-based artists—actors, dancers, storytellers, and musicians—presenting songs and stories about pivotal figures and landmark events of the Civil Rights Movement. This matinee will feature Singers of This Age, along with WITNESS Teaching Artists, guest artists, and members of the VocalEssence Chorus. Experience stories woven to connect past struggles to the present in pursuit of an equitable future for all. Be a part of the journey to “keep your eyes on the prize and hold on” as you lift your voice to commit to and continue the legacy of those who fought for freedom, as we march towards racial justice.
