A Testament of Hope – Webinar Registration – Zoom

The Museum of African American History and the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras are proud to present our 14th annual celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. hosted virtually this year by GBH Forum Network.

This collaboration is a unique partnership of history and music that highlights the words of Dr. King and the musicians of the BYSO’s Intensive Community Program Orchestra. On this special day MAAH and BYSO have traditionally come together to embrace Dr. King’s transformative words along with the young musicians of BYSO’s Intensive Community Program Orchestra performing inspiring music that reminds us of the resilience of the human spirit.

Together we are proud to recognize Dr. King’s enormous impact on our lives. Through the spirit of this day we celebrate his dream as we acknowledge that the work is not done. MAAH and BYSO recognize the universal role of music in the African American experience and its impact across race and ethnicity to advance the message of freedom and hope, past, present and future.
