A must-see-and-hear annual highlight in tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

When the power of the human voice meets the spirit of community and the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the result is guaranteed to be joyous and inspiring—as thousands of Living the Dream attendees over the years can attest. Join us once again as the combined choirs of Washington Performing Arts and Choral Arts raise their voices in tribute both to Dr. King’s achievements and to his ongoing, indelible impact.

Co-presented with the Choral Arts Society of Washington
