"I Have a Dream"Chanteuse/opera soprano Julie Ziavras and pianist/composer Steve Margoshes provide an evening of wide-ranging works in tribute to those who have struggled for social justice and human rights, such as selections from Catalonian composer Xavier Montsalvatge's song cycle Cinco canciones negras of 1945-46 about the Negro population in Cuba, protest songs by the Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis, who was a key voice against the Greek junta, songs by Jewish composers who fled Nazi Germany, such as Kurt Weill, as well as works by Irving Berlin and sons of Jewish émigrés, such as Gershwin, Kern, Rodgers, Lerner & Loewe. Special for this performance is Julie performing Joan Baez on guitar and "I Have A Dream," a composition by Steve Margoshes (best known for his original score of Fame - The Musical), that brings the inspirational words of Dr. Martin Luther King's speech to musical life and which was first performed at the Martin Luther King Celebration in Atlanta by invitation from Coretta Scott King.

"It was wonderful to have you here. The performance was terrific and the audience was inspired. I got a lot of appreciation for bringing you here. A few of us agreed that the second half of the concert was the strongest in terms of both how you personally connected to, and emotionally conveyed, that repertoire and that it seemed the more natural material for your particular vocal range. The Greek work and Joan Baez was the most exceptional as it felt like something truly elevated and special was coming from you."
Marc Lambert, Director
