Video: LBERtK5Cd4k

The Cape Symphony performs this extraordinary original multimedia work, featuring the powerful words of Nelson Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. To quote Dr. King, "Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away, and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted from our fear-drenched communities, and in some not-too-distant tomorrow, the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty."

“Beyond Bars” is by Bradley Williams, text by Nelson Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Letter from Birmingham Jail), narrated by Dr. Johann Buis and Rev. Dr. Joan M. Martin. This video is from the Cape Symphony’s January 2020 “Passport to Africa” concert, under the direction of Jung-Ho Pak, Artistic Director & Conductor.
