The concert will feature the World Premiere of Sinfonietta of Dreams, a newly commissioned composition by composer Jeff Scott. The music will be based on the "Dream" speech MLK gave in Rocky Mount prior to his well-known Washington speech, and will feature gospel choir, orchestra and actual recordings from the speech. NCSU faculty member Dr. Jason Miller will speak about the story behind Dr. King’s NC speech and its legacy. A post-concert discussion will complement the music.
