CANCELLED - What Is This Thing Called Freedom? Transforming and Timeless Songs of Protest - (LM)
Due to inclement weather, tonight's event has been cancelled. If you already purchased tickets for the event, we will begin processing refunds Monday, January 28th.

This special program reflects on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with violinist Diane Monroe and her jazz quintet, along with vocalist Paul Jost. Drawing on the passionate music of the Civil Rights Movement, these extraordinary artists relive, revive and refresh songs from Bob Dylan, Gil Scott Heron, Richie Havens, Joni Mitchell, Pete Seeger, Dr. Billie Taylor, and many others who contributed to the soundtrack of an era. Trained as a classical violinist, Monroe bridges the worlds of classical and jazz music and has performed with renowned jazz artists such as Percy Heath, John Blake, Dave Grusin, Joe Lovano, and Wycliff Gordon.

Sponsored by the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech. Co-presented with the Office for Diversity and Inclusion.
