The Struggle To Forgive

Location: Schimmel Center

In this world premiere of Gary S. Fagin's new cantata for soprano, mezzo-soprano, baritone and orchestra, the KCO gave voice, hauntingly, to those most affected by the gun epidemic: victims of gun violence and their families. This timely piece has been called “beautiful;” “stunning;” “an important work." 

"The Struggle To Forgive - Confronting Gun Violence in America" was presented at the Schimmel Center for the Arts (Pace University) on Friday, May 4, 2018, beginning at 7:30pm. 

Complex and powerful, the evening told the sweeping story of an issue that defines our time—gun violence.
