Coretta Scott King Tribute Concert | Continuation of a Dream: Requiem
Continuation of a Dream: Requiem is the New England Conservatory Black Student Union's annual celebration of the life and contribution of NEC alumna Coretta Scott King, and Black students and faculty throughout the Conservatory's history.
In 2021, the celebration will take the form of a short performance film, highlighting the stories of students past and present. Requiem, otherwise known as a Mass for the repose of the souls of the dead, creates a space in the Conservatory to truly reflect and give power to the Black lives that have been unjustifiably lost over centuries in America.
