Our final performance in Mexico City (August 28, 2016) was filmed and broadcast live over UNAM television, and that video is now available on YouTube. The whole concert is fantastic, including performances from violinists Philippe Quint and Vadim Gluzman on the first half. The suite from Freedom Ride starts at about 1:12:00, followed by a suite from Scott Joplin’s Treemonisha and several spirituals. Our soloists here are Dara Rahming as Sylvie, Chauncey Packer as Russell, and Ivan Griffin as Clayton. The chorus is the great New Orleans Black Chorale, under the direction of John Ware, and la Orquesta Sinfónica de Minería is conducted by Carlos Miguel Prieto.

…outstanding performance! The music, the lyrics, the performances, and the orchestra were magnificent. I hope this will be performed in the United States soon.
