Every year, Harmony, Hope & Healing receives 50-60 tickets from the Auditorium Theater to attend Too Hot To Handel: the Jazz-Gospel Messiah. In addition to the great seats, the provided a workshop for participants at Grace House and St. Leonard's House as part of the Admit One program. The workshop breaks down the eclectic piece of music and connects the lyrics of Handel's classic oratorio to Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic "I have a dream" speech. The program, presented during the week of Martin Luther King Jr.s birthday, celebrates his vision of creating a "beloved community."
Thanks, Auditorium Theater! You're a great community partner!
