Celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King with Santa Monica Symphony’s annual MLK Weekend Concert.

After the intermission, award-winning Bass-Baritone soloist Cedric Berry will present Giacomo Puccini’s “Te Deum” from the opera Tosca. His narration of the remarkably lyrical and deeply affecting finale piece, New Morning for the World by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Joseph Schwantner will complete the afternoon performance.
