Two Wings: The Music of Black America in Migration

Saturday, March 30, 2019 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Jason Moran and Alicia Hall Moran by Dawoud Bey
Jason Moran and Alicia Hall Moran draw upon their own family lore and the historical record of the Great Migration to compose tableaux that explore a continuum of music from rhythm and blues to gospel, classical to Broadway, work songs to rock ‘n’ roll. Experience the ingenuity of these artists as they take a journey from the American South after emancipation to all points North, West, and beyond—shining a light on the epic event that changed the sound of America forever.
