free with registration

his performance, created in honor of Kim Phuc PHAN THI, was “composed immediately after viewing a televised news segment of a young Vietnamese girl running naked on a road outside her village. She was in obvious agony from the napalm attack which burned her skin. “Children of The Fire” was my immediate music and human response to that horrific sight.  First Breath Last Sigh: A Journey Called Life” is a composition in three veils, the first of which is dedicated to young Kevon, a superb singer with The great Morgan State University Choir. As is too often the case, he was gunned down in the streets of Baltimore, Maryland. The work is the symbolism of a force used to clear all obstacles which would hinder the return passage of Kevon’s spirit its original source.”  Hannibal Lokumbe

Performed with the Play on Philly Symphony Orchestra and CAPA Choir of The Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts.
