Seven Last Words of the Unarmed

by Joel Thompson

Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble

Colorado College Chamber Chorus

Colorado Springs Children's Chorale

Saturday, March 9, 2024, 7:00 pm

Cornerstone Arts Center

Colorado College

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
