Sounds of the Civil Rights Movement: The Power of Song brings together more than 200 participants in Florida and California to share the history of the music that drove the Civil Rights Movement.
Support of this production enables dozens of school-aged children to perform with professional artists who serve as mentors throughout the rehearsals and events. Some students will travel with the production for the domestic and even international performances of the show.
