The 2014 Oscar-winning movie—starring Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, and Tessa Thompson—tells the story of the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Protesting segregationist repression and led by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and now-U.S. Representative John Lewis (D-GA.), it helped lead to passage of the Voting Rights Act later that year. Experience this iconic movie live with full orchestra, conducted by Sarah Hicks. The orchestra will be joined by jazz pianist and 2010 MacArthur fellow Jason Moran and guitarist Marvin Sewell.
Produced by Sarah Hicks.
