Some celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with community service, hard-hitting lectures or commemorative marches. Pianist Damien Sneed honors the legacy of the late nonviolent civil rights leader through music. In Sneed’s program “We Shall Overcome: A Celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.,” excerpts of King’s speeches thread through works from African American musical traditions. Audience members may recognize selections by Duke Ellington, Stevie Wonder and Nina Simone among traditional and modern works from the jazz, classical and gospel genres, as well as spirituals and Broadway tunes. The Burlington Ecumenical Gospel Choir lends its voices to this spirited concert.
