Program
Join members of The Harlem Chamber Players in a Watch Party, Talk and Q&A featuring this February 2019 world premiere performance of "Nobody Know," a concert aria by the renowned composer Adolphus Hailstork (text by Herbert Woodward Martin).

It was commissioned by The Harlem Chamber Players to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the first Africans brought to America as slaves. The piece depicts a “song from the other cross,” a viewpoint of one of the thieves crucified with Christ on Good Friday, the thief who spoke to Christ.

Dr. Herbert Woodward Martin, Librettist
Kenneth Overton, Baritone
Ashley Horne, Violin
Jessica McJunkins, Violin
