January 13 & 15
7 p.m.

The power of song will uplift, inspire and empower at the 11th annual Let Freedom Sing Concerts.

Celebrating the life, legacy and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the production‘s blend of choral music, moving oratory and contemporary dance will express the vision and wisdom of the groundbreaking Civil Rights leader.

A cherished local MLK Day tradition, performances take place Saturday, January 13 at Ebenezer Baptist Church in the Hill District and Monday, January 15 at the Byham.

Performers include The Heritage Gospel Chorale of Pittsburgh, two dance troupes and The MLK Festival Choir — which is an intergenerational community of singers from high school, church, temple and community choirs from across greater Pittsburgh.

Saturday’s concert will feature the Trevor C. Dance Collective and Monday’s performance will spotlight Reed Dance II. Emcee for the concerts is KDKA-TV reporter and producer, Lynne Hayes-Freeland.

Aiming to eliminate geographic, demographic and economic barriers, the concerts will embody concepts of unity, love, diversity and social justice.

Admission to Saturday’s concert at Ebenezer Baptist Church is free. Monetary donations will be accepted to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
