Following this we will offer choral tributes, including one honoring Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday, and featuring the oratorio Scenes from the Life of a Martyr, composed by Undine Smith Moore, and narrated by Noah Griffin. Also featured will be selections arranged by Moses Hogan, Lisa Gutkin, Ben Allway and Crawford Gates. The concert, under the direction of Dr. Mark Sumner, will include four choruses, a full orchestra, and guest soloists Michele Kennedy, Crystal Philippi, and Alex Taite.
