Seven Last Words of the Unarmed

Colorado Springs Children's Chorale
Saturday, March 9, 2024 - 7:00 pm
Cornerstone Arts Center
Richard F. Celeste Theatre
825 N. Cascade Avenue
This haunting 7-movement work sets to music the final words of seven black men and boys: Kenneth Chamberlain, Trayvon Martin, Amadou Diallo, Michael Brown, Oscar Grant, John Crawford, and Eric Garner.
For composer Joel Thompson, this project began simply, as a private expression of his grief and a prayer for empathy. Since its premiere in 2015 it has been the source of much conversation and inspiration, demonstrating how music and art can help us move forward as we tackle important and painful problems in our society.
“Now more than ever do we need art to create sincere dialogue between disparate groups.”
- Joel Thompson
