A King Celebration

A King Celebration

A King Celebration is an annual musical tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., featuring the combined forces of the Atlanta Symphony Ochestra and the Morehouse and Spelman College Glee Clubs along with an array of distinguished guest artists. Since 1997, it has been presented during the month of January in the Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel of Morehouse College. The concert is taped by National Public Radio for broadcast on the King Holiday, and, according to Benjamin K. Roe, director of Music at NPR, "it has become one of NPR's most heavily anticipated broadcasts, both here and abroad." The event is made possible through a collaboration of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, National Public Radio, the King Center, and Morehouse and Spelman Colleges.
