Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Nation’s Oldest Baptist Church

The team at Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD are proud to sponsor and participate in an event to celebrate the leadership and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., later this month.

This concert event will take place at the nation’s oldest Baptist church, The First Baptist Church in America, at 3 p.m., on February 23, 2020. Admission is free, and all members of the community are invited to attend.

The concert will feature musicians from The First Baptist Church in America, Newman Congregational Church UCC, and Stages of Freedom, as well as other leaders and members of the Providence community.

Focusing on remembering Dr. King’s work and lifting up his legacy, the show will begin with a reading of Dr. King’s “A Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” It will also feature the original cantata, “Let Justice Roll!” This cantata was written by Mark Miller, a Juilliard graduate, and a Lecturer at Yale Institute of Sacred Music.

“The cantata is the ultimate representation of Mark Miller’s hunger—like Dr. King’s—to break down the dividing walls of hostility and fear. Miller believes that music can change the world,” according to a joint statement about the show from its directors, Stephen Martorella and Geoffrey Green.

The event will feature musicians and famed voices from across Rhode Island and beyond. This powerful cantata includes solo performances from guest artists such as:

  • Claudius Cooper, Rhode Island’s own sacred jazz pianist
  • Frank Mathis, baritone from New York City
  • Becky Bass, soprano member of the Newman Congregational Church Choir
  • Lawrence E. Wilson, community leader, and leadership & diversity strategist

Wilson will not only serve as the narrator for the cantata, but he will also conduct two of his own original works as part of the program. These works also support the theme of celebrating and continuing Dr. King’s legacy and inspiring today’s community to overcome fear and hate to live in peace and unity.

As a sponsor and participant in the “Let Justice Roll Event,” and as members of the community who live and work in Providence, the team from Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD invite you to join us on February 23, 2020, at 3 p.m. for this community-wide celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy.
