Songs of Spirit and Unity: A Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute Concert

The Brooklyn Music School is proud to present Songs of Spirit and Unity: A Martin Luther King Jr. tribute concert featuring guest vocalist Ms. Karen Bernod.

Song was among the most important unifying and rallying factors in Dr. King’s movement of peace and equality, a movement that has provided many Brooklyn Music School students and faculty with the opportunity to pursue music and other skills at all levels.
