As part of our ongoing effort to de-center whiteness and to promote anti-racism, Dayspring’s musicians will present a concert of music written by Black composers on Sunday, March 28, at 2pm. Like the program we presented in November, this will be live-streamed (there will be no audience in the sanctuary). Watch live HERE. The recording will be available on all the usual video channels for Dayspring events starting at 5pm HERE. We will request donations to benefit the newly created Dayspring HBCU Scholarship Fund.
We’re especially excited to welcome as a guest on this program ASU faculty member Nathan De’Shon Myers. You may remember him from last year’s MLK Sunday services: he sang with the choirs and presented the message along with Pastor Jeff. He also sang on the Bahamas Benefit Concert we gave in October 2019. If you were at either of those, you know what a special person he is; and if you missed them, you’re in for a rare treat! (You can learn more about Nathan by visiting his website: thenathanmyers.com.)
Also featuring music from Amanda Osman-Balzell, Miriam Schildkret, Justin Carpenter, Robert Mills, and Norman Jenson, the concert will be like everything else we strive for in Dayspring Music: uplifting, joyful, and moving. At the same time, it will center and celebrate voices we have too long ignored and suppressed. And that, we hope, will be another step in the long journey towards justice.
