Saturday, January 18, 7:00 pm
At this tenth annual tribute concert, under the direction of Charles Dickerson, the Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles and their Community Chorus will perform an array of uplifting numbers, including “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” “From Sea to Shining Sea,” and “I Have a Dream”—an orchestral and choral setting of Dr. King’s 1963 speech delivered during the March on Washington. The program will also feature the winners of the SCLC Annual Oratorical and Essay Contest.

For twenty years the Toronto-based group Beyond the Pale has been making its distinctive brand of boundary-busting Eurofolk fusion. Influenced by jazz, classical, bluegrass, reggae, klezmer, and Balkan musical traditions, Beyond the Pale’s music traverses a vast and exotic musical landscape. LA Weekly calls their work “a bracingly modern, mind-blowing flight into a very new Jewish-Balkan sonic atmosphere.”
