      We Shall Overcome:A Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. featuring Damien Sneed

      Damien Sneed has collaborated with Diana Ross and Wynton Marsalis while also serving as Aretha Franklin’s longtime music director. Now he takes center stage in a show of his own that celebrates the movement inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. From his commanding post at the piano, he leads an electrifying ensemble of gospel singers and jazz musicians as they perform cherished R&B classics, riveting jazz compositions and more—from Duke Ellington and Stevie Wonder to traditional spirituals and music from the hit Broadway musical The Wiz.

      A pre-show lecture with Frank Wilderson III, Professor and Chair of African American Studies at UC Irvine, at 7pm.
