DC Metro HBCU Alumni Alliance: Happy New Year!

Dr. Henry Panion, III: Dreams of Hope to Broadcast on PBS Stations Across America in February 2020

Dr. Henry Panion, III writes:

Inspiring program releases on public television in February 2020

(Boston, MA – December 31, 2019) The concert documentary Dreams of Hope tells the story of a historic performance at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, more than 50 years after a hate crime there killed four African American girls. An initiative called Violins of Hope contributed painstakingly restored musical instruments to the event, including violins recovered from Holocaust concentration camps, which serve as symbols of resilience in the face of hate, discrimination and racism.

Directed by David Macon and Dr. Henry Panion, III, and presented and distributed by American Public Television, Dreams of Hope will air on public television stations nationwide in February 2020 for Black History Month (check local listings for airdates).

With a captivating storyline written by filmmaker David L. Macon, Dreams of Hope blends concert performance footage with behind-the-scenes interviews chronicling the event's preparation and reflecting on its significance. The program includes reflections by Richard Arrington, Jr., the first African-American Mayor of Birmingham; Jeffrey and Gail Bayer, co-chairs of Violins of Hope Birmingham; Chris Hamlin, former Pastor of 16th Street Baptist; Amnon and Assi Weinstein, founders of Violins of Hope; Dr. Henry Panion, III; violinist Caitlin Edwards; and Sallie Downs, who spearheaded the initiative to bring Violins of Hope to Birmingham.

Concert footage features the premiere of "Dreams of Hope for Solo Violin & Orchestra" by acclaimed composer and conductor Henry Panion, III, commissioned especially for this concert. Alongside the Dreams of Hope Orchestra, the concert features vocalists Valerie Smith and Lenora Goodman-Panion, dancer Kelsey Ebersold, and the Miles College Choir. Violinist Caitlin Edwards returns to her hometown of Birmingham to play the Auschwitz Violin, originally built around 1850.

Dreams of Hope is a demonstration of what can happen when people of different backgrounds and cultures come together on common ground and communicate with a common voice, recognizing yet celebrating their differences.

"First there was John Williams’ Schindler's List and now there's Henry Panion's Dreams of Hope. It's a masterpiece that should be heard at Carnegie Hall and all over the world. There are just no words for the brilliant gifts of music which we received that evening."
—Amnon Weinstein

“The story of these violins and the Jewish people is of survival, hope, and triumph, one that so parallels the story of the 16th Street Baptist Church and its people. Having suffered the worst fate imaginable, the church and these violins have been beautifully restored and are now magnificent relics for all to behold. As a people of the human race, we continue to strive and hope for a better world through our struggles, our trials, our tribulations… and our triumphs.”
—Dr. Henry Panion, III

Chicago's Congo Square Theatre Company Announces 20th Anniversary Presentation

Congo Square Theatre Company
commemorates 20th Anniversary season with rare
production of satiric classic DAY OF ABSENCE by 
Douglas Turner Ward
in the Richard Christiansen Theatre at 
Victory Gardens
February 27-March 22, 2020; 
Official Opening March 2, 2020
Upcoming season led by interim Executive 
Director Luther Goins and new Board Chair
Christopher Audrain

CHICAGO – Congo Square Theatre Company, well known  for its powerful portrayal of African American classics and gripping new works, commemorates its 20th Anniversary season with a rare production of the 1965 satirical fantasy, Day of Absence, at the Richard Christiansen Theatre (housed inside Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave.), February 27-March 22, 2020. Its official opening night is Monday, March 2, 2020, at 7:30pm.     

Day of Absence was written and directed by Douglas Turner Ward in 1965 and helped launch the New York-based Negro Ensemble Company, whose overall mission is to present live theatre performances by and about black people to a culturally diverse audience that is often under served by the theatrical community. Day of Absence recounts the uproarious emergencies that occur when a Southern town is faced with the sudden and inexplicable disappearance of all its black citizens; it is traditionally performed as a ‘reverse minstrel show,’ with black actors in whiteface.  A past winner of coveted Vernon Rice and Obie Awards, this reimagined production is directed by Congo Square ensemble member Anthony Irons and produced by the company’s Founding Artistic Director and Associate Professor of Theatre at UIC, Derrick Sanders.  The cast will be announced shortly. 

“It’s a pleasure for me to return as a producer to kick off Congo Square’s 20th year celebration. Congo Square has been inspired by many ensemble theater companies; none more significant than the historic Negro Ensemble Company. Our desire to produce Day of Absence comes from both the need to honor its legacy and impact on our theatre company, and also to examine the contemporary evolution this biting satire has had on America present-day culture. I am equally thrilled to bring more ensemble members back to our stage than we have had in years,” said Sanders.

Day of Absence performance schedule and tickets
From February 27-March 22, 2020, Day of Absence will be performed Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3 and 8pm, and Sunday afternoon at 3pm. All tickets are priced at $35 ($25 for seniors and students). Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.  To purchase tickets, and for more information, please call 773-296-1108 or visit the website at www.congosquaretheatre.org.

20th Anniversary restructuring
The choice to produce Day of Absence speaks to the legacy of African American theatre companies and comes at a time when Congo Square is celebrating 20 years of producing theatre in Chicago.  

The 20-year milestone comes at a time when the organization is restructuring, so that it can continue to be the creative home of black artists at all stages of their career, while continuing to produce powerful theatre that portrays the African American experience. The restructure includes Luther Goins joining as Interim Executive Director. Goins is a producer, director, playwright and theatre consultant whose past experience includes serving as the Managing Director at Chicago Theatre Company; more recently he served as Business Representative with the Chicago office of Actors’ Equity Association, the Union for Actors and Stage Managers in the United States.

In addition, Congo Square expands with the addition of Kelvin Roston, Jr., the first new member to formally join the ensemble in several years. Roston wrote and starred in the one-man musical, Twisted Melodies, which portrays the life and death of R&B artist Donny Hathaway. Originally produced by Congo Square here in 2015, a Twisted Melodies remount directed by Derrick Sanders recently toured with stops in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and in New York at the famed Apollo Theater. He can be seen starring in the title role of Oedipus Rex in Court Theatre’s critically acclaimed production which opened November 7.

The Board of Directors has also grown under the leadership of Christopher Audain, who joined the board in 2015 and was elected Board Chair in January 2019. Further, in October 2019, Chicago native and stage & screen actor Harry Lennix was approved by unanimous vote to serve on the Board of Directors.  Lennix, known for his roles in The Five Heartbeats, Get on the Bus, Ray, and The Blacklist, brings business acumen, industry expertise, and a broad network to the board.

Additional board members added in 2019 are Sandra Hoyt, Dawn Frances Reese, Gertrude Wooten, and Alvin Goldfarb. Chanel Coney rejoined a board which also includes Constance Jones, Mike Pitts, and Hugh Williams, all bringing experience in fundraising and nonprofit management to the organization.

About Congo Square Theatre Company
Congo Square Theatre Company (Congo Square) is an ensemble dedicated to artistic excellence. By producing definitive and transformative theatre spawned from the African Diaspora, as well as other world cultures, Congo Square seeks to establish itself as an institution of multicultural theatre. Congo Square is one of only two African American Actors’ Equity theatre companies in Chicago. Founded in 1999, Congo Square aimed to provide a platform for black artists to perform and present classic and new work that exemplified the majesty, diversity and intersectionality of stories from the African Diaspora.

Congo Square has risen to become one of the most well-respected African American theatres in the nation. Previously mentored by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson, Congo Square would go on to cultivate talents such as playwright Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), who penned the 2006 Jeff nominated play Deep Azure, and playwright Lydia Diamond, who penned the massively successful Stick Fly, a critically acclaimed play that explores race, class, and familial friction. Stick Fly ultimately ran on Broadway and is currently being developed into a full-length series for HBO with Alicia Keys serving as a producer. Congo Square also produced the widely praised Seven Guitars, which would eventually go on to win top honors for best ensemble, best direction, and best production at the 2005 Joseph Jefferson Awards. This would earn the theatre company the distinction of being the first African American theatre company to receive such an honor.

Congo Square’s Educational Programs bring the impact of theater to young audiences. Its two outreach programs, CORE (Curriculum Objectives Residency Enrichment), and CAST (Congo After School Theatre), present and teach theater arts by providing classroom and after-school residencies that provide Teaching Artists to build upon already established Chicago Public Schools literature and art curriculums. CORE and CAST impact students and schools located in the Bronzeville, Auburn, Gresham, Douglas, and Woodlawn neighborhoods.

Sergio Mims: ClassicFM.com: Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason awarded MBE in New Year’s Honours

Sergio A. Mims forwards this news:

27 December 2019

By Maddy Shaw Roberts 

Sheku Kanneh-Mason, 20-year-old cellist and Decca recording artist, has been made an MBE (Member of the British Empire) for his services to music.   

After winning the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year, Sheku played to an audience of two billion people at the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and quickly found international fame as a soloist.

He has since been outspoken about music education, and is a Junior Ambassador of London Music Masters, a music education charity that supports young musicians in classical music.
“To be awarded the MBE for services to music is amazing,” Sheku tells Classic FM.
“I was so lucky to have the dedicated support of my parents in giving me the opportunity to have specialist music lessons from a young child. I also had incredible support from the state schools I attended in Nottingham where music was promoted for its value in developing listening skills, teamwork, self-expression and hard work.

“The love and enjoyment for this great art is something that should be available to everyone, regardless of background.”

On March 14, the Marcus Roberts Trio—Roberts on piano, Rodney Jordan on bass, and Jason Marsalis on drums—pay tribute to “Piano Giants” of the 20th century, including Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Thelonious Monk, and Duke Ellington. Known for its virtuosic style and entirely new approach to jazz trio performance, the Marcus Roberts Trio members share equally in shaping the direction of the music with lightning reflexes and imagination. Influenced by the famous piano trio styles of Ahmad Jamal and Oscar Peterson, the Marcus Roberts Trio builds from that rich foundation to create an ever-evolving sound all its own that is sure to delight jazz audiences. 

On March 28, “100 Years of Art Blakey” pays tribute to the drummer and bandleader who founded the Jazz Messengers, a collective that influenced generations of leading musicians through mentorship and intergenerational collaboration. Performers include Jazz Messengers alumni trombonist Robin Eubanks, saxophonist Javon Jackson, and trumpeter Charles Toliver; singer and Music Institute artist-in-residence Tammy McCann; and drummer Clif Wallace and his Big Band.

Nichols Concert Hall

The converted building, featuring a fully restored, 1914 E. M. Skinner pipe organ, received the Richard H. Driehaus Award for best adaptive use by the Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois.  Each year Nichols Concert Hall reaches approximately 15,000 people and hosts a world-class chamber music series, workshops and master classes, student recitals, and special events.

Dance Center Presents U.S. Debut of Nigerian Dance Artist Qudus Onikeku March 13–14

Nigerian choreographer/dancer Qudus Onikeku makes his U.S. debut, accompanied by Uruguayan artist Fernando Velazquez and musicians, with his work Spirit Child March 13 and 14, presented by the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago, 1306 S. Michigan Avenue.
Spirit Child is inspired by the main character in Nigerian author Ben Okri’s Booker Prize-winning novel The Famished Road. Azaro, the restless spirit child, is caught between life and death, between Earth-bound reality and an idyllic spirit world. Onikeku, with Velazquez and the musicians, has created an atmosphere of transition between the enchanted world of dreams and spirits and the world of the living. Spirit Child offers a meditative journey into dreamscapes, creating a poetry that brings a new kind of truth—or an old truth that no longer captures our attention.
These performances are the debut of Onikeku’s choreography on a major U.S. stage, though he has performed all over the world. He spent the fall 2018 semester at the Dance Center as practitioner-in-residence, working with students and setting work on those enrolled in the Repertory Performance Workshop.
Residency activities
There will be post-performance conversations with Onikeku after both performances. Additional residency activities with community partners and Columbia College Chicago students take place throughout the week leading up to the performance weekend.
Qudus Onikeku
A love for acrobatics at a young age led Qudus Onikeku to create a movement identity that fuses dance and acrobatics, while basing his choreography in Yoruba traditional philosophy combined with hip hop, capoeira, tai chi, and contemporary dance vocabularies to weave an understanding of dance, art, politics, and everything in between. In 2014, Onikeku founded the QDance Center, which blends artistry and community on both the grassroots and global levels, impacting nearly 50 countries worldwide. Its centerpiece event, danceGathering, is a two-week, collaborative, “anti-disciplinary” festival that gathers dancers, writers, musicians, architects, and scholars in Lagos.
Onikeku's artistic journey as a solo artist has intensified his interest in the aesthetics and artistry of African peoples in general. He writes, “I am particularly animated by body memory rather than history, by the will to reach out and touch the audience above the will to express something of the self, and, in so doing, I’ve constantly searched for ways to fuse poetic attitudes with African satirical and fictitious modes of storytelling, as in the griot tradition, combining  social history, collective memory or collective amnesia with personal autobiography, as a critical launching pad in the process of myth reading and communal rejuvenation.”

Qudus Onikeku performs his work Spirit Child
Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14 at
7:30 p.m.
at the Dance Center, 1306 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago. 

Tickets are $30, $24 for seniors and $10 for students,
available at 
dance.colum.edu or by calling 312-369-8330.
Patrons save 25% with a subscription 
to three or more
performances and dates. All programming is subject to change.

The Dance Center’s presentation of Qudus Onikeku is made possible by FUSED (French U.S. Exchange in Dance), a program developed by FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States with support from the Florence Gould Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Institut français-Paris, the French Ministry of Culture, and private donors. This project is partially supported by a grant from the Office of Academic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Columbia College Chicago.
The Dance Center
The Dance Center’s 2019–20 season concludes with Abby Z and the New Utility in their Chicago debut April 9–11.

The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago is the city’s leading presenter of contemporary dance, showcasing artists of regional, national and international significance. The Dance Center has been named “Chicago’s Best Dance Theatre” by Chicago magazine, “Best Dance Venue” by the Chicago Reader and Chicago’s top dance venue by Newcity, and Time Out Chicago cited it as “…consistently offering one of Chicago’s strongest lineups of contemporary and experimental touring dance companies.” The Dance Center recently celebrated 45 years of presenting contemporary dance in Chicago.
Programs at the Dance Center are supported, in part, by the Alphawood Foundation, The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, the Illinois Arts Council Agency, the Martha Struthers Farley and Donald C. Farley Jr. Family Foundation, the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, the Irving Harris Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is provided by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Presenting Series is also supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Illinois Arts Council Agency and the Crane Group. Additional project support, in part, by a grant from the Western Arts Alliance Advancing Indigenous Performance Touring Fund and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Supplemental support includes FUSED (French U.S. Exchange in Dance), a program developed by FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States with the support from the Florence Gould Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Institut français-Paris, the French Ministry of Culture, and private donors. Special thanks to the Friends of the Dance Center for their generous contributions to the Dance Center’s work.

This holiday season we are filled with gratitude for the community of music-lovers and supporters who make Key to Change possible. Thank you for filling this year with new opportunities for our students to grow as musicians and young leaders.

With your support, we were able to increase the number of students we serve by 50 percent. We hired an additional music instructor, doubled our students’ lesson time, and expanded our curriculum to encompass critical music theory and ear training skills.

This year we also established the new Daniel Ching Scholarship for students who embody musical excellence, and our students had an opportunity to work with nearly a dozen guest artists through our master class series. We also launched our inaugural Solo String Festival, which brought together over 25 students from across South King County for an inclusive and empowering string competition, the winners of which performed live on Classical KING FM 98.1.

Thank you for making all this possible!

We want to thank all those that have supported us in the creation of the Imani Winds Foundation, a non-profit,
501(c)(3) organization.

The vision of the Foundation is to steer the
national conversation on instrumental music by commissioning composers of new music, training and mentoring the next generations of musicians, and
implementing projects that highlight and
strengthen the rich diversity of chamber music.


Imani Winds Foundation exists to create meaningful connections through music. 

The Legacy Commissioning Project is now in it's 2nd decade. The latest composer to be commissioned is the incredible Andy Akiho.

The piece is designed to be performed inside immigrant detention centers. The performance of the new work will be a musical manifestation of healing and support. Music is a powerful conduit of intent and with this collaboration the intent is to build a singular shared experience, involving the performers, audience, indirect participants and witnesses in a gesture of hope and goodwill that will affect all within the experiential loop.

Please support this commission and all other endeavors of the Imani Winds Foundation!
