The program transcends race, age, and gender to unite all who honor Dr. King’s ideals with songs that unite our spirits.
Choral Arts will present the 2023 Humanitarian Award to an individual who shows incredible leadership through their dedication to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Recent recipients include LaTosha Brown (2022) and Sherrilyn Ifill (2020).
