As they travel to visit the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, the Nebraska Wesleyan University Choir and Jazz Choir bring a message of hope to audiences in Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Tennessee. Inspired by a phrase from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s favorite hymn ("...lead me on to the light"), this eclectic and engaging program features music by Rosephanye Powell, Moses Hogan, Maurice Duruflé, Heinrich Schütz, and Dolly Parton. Tom Trenney's arrangement of "We Shall Overcome" and U2's haunting "MLK" are sure to be highlights of this powerful program.
