Let My People Go! by Donald McCullough

This dramatic work celebrates two cultural treasures—the African-American spiritual and the Underground Railroad. It explores the ingenuity of America’s slaves who created “code songs” that inspired others to escape and instructed when, where, and how to journey to freedom. The SVC will be joined by four world-class African American soloists and a jazz trio.

– Stretansky Hall, Susquehanna University
