We kick off our 10th anniversary season with our first partnership with the Missouri History Museum. Presented as part of the exhibit “#1 in Civil Rights: The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis”, FAITH explores the power faith through the lens of music. Acclaimed baritone Robert McNichols Jr. is featured on this program, which includes a world premiere by Adam Maness inspired by the Dred Scott case. The failure of the case to grant Scott’s freedom inspired Frederick Douglass to say “[We must] Walk on Faith, not by Sight”. Adam’s moving piece, “The Delmar Wall” rounds out the first half of of the program. A classic by Samuel Barber, Dover Beach, questions faith and a contemporary masterpiece by Christopher Rouse explores practicing faith to complete the program
