Artistic Director Joseph Holt said he had little idea how prophetic and timely the theme would be. Nor did he know how such concerts as “Marching to Freedom,” dedicated to the African American experience and challenges over the centuries, and “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” featuring inspirational songs from Broadway, would resonate with audiences who have been isolated from one another and live performance for a year.
