In the face of fear and the wake of the unimaginable, music offers the courage to rise up and shout out truths to which words cannot speak. Nkeiru Okoye responds to the events of September 11, 2001 with “a march to acknowledge those fighting on behalf of our safety, and yet a sparkling celebration of life for those of us who continue living.” Shostakovich’s monumental fifth symphony journeys from torment to rebirth under the oppressive watch of the Soviet state.
