The Institute for Social Justice in the Arts @ TCNJ invites you to attend a special event for high school students. This event is free and will take place in the Music Building.
Explore issues of social justice and the hope for peace through music! Attend a TCNJ Wind Ensemble concert and hear music composed in response to the Holocaust, Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” speech, the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting, and systemic racism. Participate in a pre-concert class lead by TCNJ professors to learn about these pieces and to share how your experiences with race, violence, and other equity issues resonate with this music.
