We Who Believe in Freedom: Debut Concert @ Hancock for Labyrinth Choir

The Labyrinth choir debuted at Hancock this evening, performing an eclectic program of songs about Freedom.  Members of the audience were impressed by the group’s expressive virtuosity, which ranged from passionately defiant to quietly contemplative.  The group’s energy expressed a genuine vibrancy of will, channeled, perhaps, directly from the words of the oppressed.

We look forward to future performances by the Labyrinth Choir!
