‘Let Freedom Sing!’ concert celebrates Dr. King’s dream
Bridging Pittsburgh's racial divide through music and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s inspirational message of togetherness is why Kris Rust helped create the Let Freedom Sing! choral festival six years ago.
“I'm inspired by Dr. King's commitment to lifting up humanity which is common to all people," said Rust, who also serves as the director of choirs at Franklin Regional High School. "The sense that we have to be together and love one another. Dr. King said all that so eloquently in his words and vigorously in his actions. He's a figure in history.”
Rust always holds the free, two-day concert on the Martin Luther King Jr., holiday and has one concert in the City of Pittsburgh and another in a suburb of the Golden Triangle.
