Free concert Saturday in Austin

By |

The Chicago Children’s Choir will perform Saturday at Catalyst Circle Rock’s Kehrein Center for the Arts, 5628 W. Washington Blvd.

The concert’s theme is “Good Trouble” and is inspired by the story of the late Congressman John Lewis, the celebrated Civil Rights organizer and spiritual leader who fought to make a beloved community where everyone is unconditionally loved and accepted.

Diving into the activists who influenced Lewis on his journey (Mahatma Gandhi, James Lawson, Martin Luther King Jr.), as well as activists who built on the momentum of the Civil Rights Movement to advocate for other marginalized groups (Cesar Chavez, Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera) “Good Trouble” will teach a history that is seldom celebrated to inspire folks to get into good trouble — and change the world.

Saturday’s performance, which begins at 7:30 p.m., is a collaboration between the Kalapriya Center for Indian Performing Arts and Chicago Children’s Choir.
