Living the Dream, Singing the Dream: Celebrating the Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Annual Celebration for Martin Luther King, Jr. is a community event to remember Dr. King and honor those who continue to work tirelessly for justice and peace. More than just a concert, the MLK Celebration Community Initiative transcends race, age, and gender to unite all who honor his ideals.
The MLK Celebration Community Initiative Includes:
Annual Celebration Concert and Humanitarian Award Presentation: Performance for 2,400 audience members, featuring a diverse combined chorus of approximately 300 singers from the Choral Arts Society of Washington and Washington Performing Arts Men, Women, and Children of the Gospel Choirs, as well as musicians from the community. To encourage community attendance and at the request of the concert’s first Honorary Chair, the late Mrs. Coretta Scott King, ticket prices are kept low and free tickets are distributed to community groups. The Annual Humanitarian Award is presented to an individual whose life work embodies the ideals of Dr. King’s legacy. At the 2017 Tribute Concert, Ruby Bridges will receive the 14th Annual Humanitarian Award.
