About New Tyneside Orchestra, Dr Martin Luther King Jr Concert
Dr Martin Luther King Jr Concert – 7.30pm Saturday 18th November, St Nicholas Cathedral, Newcastle
The New Tyneside Orchestra and its Musical Director Monica Buckland present a programme of music inspired by the life of Dr Martin Luther King Jr, bringing together works from prominent African-American composers William Grant Still and Adolphus Hailstork with more widely played classics by Aaron Copland (Fanfare for the Common Man) and Duke Ellington (Three Black Kings).
Joining the orchestra to feature as narrator in Copland’s Lincoln Portrait will be MP for Newcastle Central, Chi Onwurah.
One of the leading amateur orchestras on Tyneside, the NTO has been making music in Newcastle since 1970 and regularly performs four concerts a year at venues across the region.
