Join the St. John’s community as some of the finest regional vocalists, including the Queen Sisters, Chozen, and the All Children’s Chorus, perform inspiring gospel spirituals at the annual “Lift Every Voice” concert honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The community is also invited to take part in seminars in which participants discuss a reading relevant to human and civil rights. These events are free and open to the public.
The seminars will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2014, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in Mellon Hall classrooms. Arrive at 9:30 a.m. at the Francis Scott Key Lobby to check in and for refreshments.

The “Lift Every Voice” concert will be held on Sunday, January 12, at 4 p.m. in the Francis Scott Key Auditorium. No tickets or reservations are required; however, seating is limited. A reception takes place immediately after the performance.
