Find the Cost of Freedom
Through the ages, people around the world have raised their voices in protest against oppression. Musica Viva Singers, under the direction of Scott Richardson, celebrate the power of freedom songs to help change the course of history. The diverse program includes music inspired by the American Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement and South Africa’s liberation struggle; from spirituals and folksongs to opera; from the songs of Oscar Peterson and Harry Belafonte to the choruses of Giuseppe Verdi. MVS is pleased to be joined by two well-known local performers: Vanessa London, soprano, will lend her melodious voice to several solo pieces. and Dr. Stephen Richer of Carleton University will lead the audience in singing a selection of well-loved spirituals.
