Freedom Writers

The best music has often been created under the most oppressive conditions. Slave spirituals in the 1800s. Martha and the Vandellas’ Civil Rights Era rallying cry “Dancing in the Streets.” The compositions by Schoenberg, Stravinsky, and many others during the Third Reich.

Check out an evening of tunes, poetry, and art created during the Holocaust and in Communist Russia when the Red Rocks Music Festival presents the Music Under Totalitarian Regime program.

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
