This year we were especially excited to bring together so many Evanston cultural arts organizations to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy and shine a light on equity in the arts. Together with Tim Rhoze, Artistic Director of Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre, we curated a wonderful array of performances.


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. remarked that, "people fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other." Nichols Concert Hall offers us a beautiful and welcoming space in which we can come together to learn, share, and celebrate with one another.


A very special thank you to everyone who participated in the event. Music and arts are of vital importance in keeping us connected to one another as well as a key way in which we expand our understanding of the world around us.
