A Song of Freedom Concert
On May 8th, the Dewberry School of Music presented "A Song of Freedom", a program that celebrates unity and resilience in the face of division and uncertainty. The concert showcased works by Black composers as well as selections inspired by the African-American experience. The program featured two world premieres commissioned by the Dewberry School of Music from renowned composer Evelyn Simpson-Curenton and Mason’s own Associate Professor of Music and Director of the Green Machine Ensembles Michael W. Nickens (Doc Nix).

This digital concert featured 120 music students performing as part of the momentous event, including additional works ranging from William Grant Still, George Walker, and Antonin Dvorák to U2’s “MLK.” The performance highlights students from the Mason Symphony Orchestra, University Choirs, Wind Symphony and Green Machine, Trombone Choir, Percussion Ensemble, and Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble.
