The Topeka Symphony's presenting two special programs of "Dance for Martin's Dream" this Thursday and Saturday. The Thursday performance is for more than 4.000 school children. Everyone's invited to the shows at TPAC at 2pm and 7:30pm Saturday. The "Dance," composed by Michael Abels was in the works in 1997.. now.. 12 years later.. it's being performed for the King holiday, which falls the day before the Obama Inauguration.
Abels is thrilled that his work is being performed to honor Dr. King's dream, and in a big way, the first African-American to lead our country.
If Martin Luther King could be in Washington on the 20th to see Barack Obama being sworn in.. what do you think he'd say about that?
