The St. James’s MLK Evensong, at 5 pm on Sunday, January 14, is our annual tribute to the inspiration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This powerful and moving service will feature St. James’s Choirs and the Concert Choir of Norfolk State University. There will also be a special appearance by Dr. Carl W. Haywood, former director of the Norfolk State Concert Choir, preeminent organist, conductor, composer, and editor of Lift Every Voice.
In addition, there will be live readings of Dr. King’s speeches, including his “I have a dream” speech, read by Dr. Ronald Crutcher, president emeritus of the University of Richmond.
The event will be followed by a lovely reception in the Parkinson Room, down stairs from the sanctuary.
