Foothills Congregational Church’s Ensemble, adult and bell choirs and the Cantabile Youth Singers of Silicon Valley are scheduled to perform a musical and spoken-word tribute to the work of Martin Luther King Jr., “Driving Out the Darkness,” 2 p.m. Jan. 21 in the Foothills sanctuary, 461 Orange Ave., Los Altos.
The choirs will celebrate the legacy of King’s call to social and civil change through nonviolent protest and discourse. According to concert organizers, King’s words are as relevant and powerful today as they were 60 years ago. They will remember the work of King and other civil rights activists, who labored to ensure equality, justice and peace for future generations. In doing so, organizers said, “we remember that the work is not finished,” and the music will aim to “inspire people to continue to spread the light that will drive out darkness in today’s uncertain world.”
Admission is free and open to all. A potluck reception with the artists will follow the concert in the Parish Hall.
