Performance Today

with host Fred Child

A King Celebration 2012

On this Martin Luther King Day, our show is devoted to a celebration of the life of Dr. King. Music was an important force in the civil rights movement, and important in the personal life of Dr. King as well. We'll hear highlights from the annual King Celebration concert in his home town of Atlanta last Thursday evening, including Yo-Yo Ma performing Dvorak's Cello Concerto with the Atlanta Symphony. <p><b>NOTE: Through our agreement with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, today's show featuring highlights from their concert "A King Celebration" is not available for web audio streaming.</b></p>
