A collaboration between the Calgary Phil and Pink Flamingo on the Black Lives Matter Murals Project invited two vastly different artistic cultures to collide. Six artists were invited to respond to a new Calgary Phil commission by Canadian composer Laura Hawley, written for our Chorus and based on L.R. Knost’s poem I Rise. We celebrate the results with the debut of this new work in a performance led by conductor Leslie B. Dunner, accompanied by the mural artwork, and music by Duke Ellington and Florence Price. Uyemi and Sinzere join us for John Legend and Common’s hit Glory from Selma.

The evening wraps up with a post-concert After Party in the lobby, curated by Pink Flamingo, featuring artists Felicia Bonee, Vogue YYC, Woezo Africa, and Jнии.
