Description

Damien Sneed’s A Celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Inspired by the words and action of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this celebration showcases repertoire from across the African American music traditions that electrified generations of civil rights activists and defenders with interwoven spoken word from King’s recorded speeches. This production ties together a living lineage of music and culture that includes traditional gospel, modern gospel, classical, jazz, Broadway and spirituals. Producer and musical director Damien Sneed’s career covers an incredible breadth of genres. He has conducted and collaborated major original works for Wynton Marsalis, regularly accompanies Jessye Norman, collaborated with Lawrence Brownlee, and has toured extensively with Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and the Clark Sisters. From Aretha Franklin, to Wynton Marsalis; Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder; Nina Simone to Donny Hathaway; and traditional spirituals and music from “the Wiz,” Sneed’s unique understanding of each genre allows him to fluidly cover so much musical ground in a single performance. Make it a double! Arrive early for even more great entertainment during Happy Hour at the Holland from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Enjoy local live artists and deals on drinks.
