Nine Lives Project @ BOP STOP
When: Oct 18, 2019, 8:00pm - 10:30pm
Where: BOP STOP
Tonight marks the 5 year anniversary of BOP STOP @ The Music Settlement. For this occasion, we want to showcase how music has the power to culturally, morally, and emotionally influence our society in a positive way. Therefore, we are thrilled to present Chris Coles' Nine Lives Project.
Saxophonist and Kent State University music teacher Chris Coles has spent the past two years creating a performance piece that he hopes will raise awareness about racial injustice.Nine Lives Project tells the story of the 2015 shooting in Charleston, S.C., where a white supremacist killed nine black parishioners at Emanuel AME Church. Coles says it was a turning point in his life.
Big Thanks to The Knight Foundation, GAR Foundation, and the PEGS Foundation for helping to make this possible.
