Acclaimed soprano Sonya Gabrielle Baker will discuss Andersonís legacy and sing selections from that historic concert in two appearances Thursday, Oct. 26, at the University of Indianapolis.
For Thee We Sing: The Historical Implications of Marian Andersonís 1939 Easter Concert will be presented at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in Ruth Lilly Performance Hall of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center, 1400 E. Hanna Ave. Admission is free to the event, part of the universityís annual Samuel A. Sutphin Lectures in the Humanities series.
The 45-minute multimedia lecture-recital includes piano accompaniment, projections of archival photos and an audio recording of Anderson, who later received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and served as a goodwill ambassador for the State Department. The live music program includes spirituals and classical selections, and Baker also takes questions from the audience.
