King concert in works

RALEIGH, N.C. – Two youth groups in the Triangle are joining forces for the first time to present a concert in Raleigh as part of a three-day celebration of the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.

The Triangle Youth Philharmonic and the Martin Luther King All-Children’s Choir will give a joint performance Jan. 19 at Meymandi Hall in Raleigh.

The program will include Eulogy for a Dream, a work by William Henry Curry, associate conductor of the North Carolina Symphony, that is based on King’s speeches and writings.

Music and drama teachers in Durham, Orange and Wake counties each may nominate up to two students each to audition for the role of narrator in the piece.

Concert sponsors include Capitol Broadcasting Co. Inc. and the A.J. Fletcher Foundation, both in Raleigh.
