Among the city’s Martin Luther King Day Jr. tributes, the Boston Children’s Chorus will take the stage at Jordan Hall.
This will be the 14th annual Martin Luther King Day concert performed by the chorus. But this year, the focus has changed in light of concerns raised by the recent presidential election.
“I was heading in one direction, then it did shift a little bit,” says Anthony Trecek-King, the president and artistic director of the chorus. “No matter where you are on the spectrum of where you voted. It’s clear that we are a divided country and it’s probably regressing, not improving. So how do we get over that how do we move forward?”
The theme of Monday night’s concert is “How I Got Over.” It now includes songs about the Syrian refugee crisis and the Trayvon Martin shooting.
