Pastor Joseph Lindsey with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra in the People's Concert, Fr, Jan 13, 7:30 pm, Civic Theater

One of downtown Shreveport's best-attended concerts of the year is the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra's People's Concert. Both sides of the city come together to rock and sway with a massive combined choir accompanied by Kermit Poling and the SSO.

Per tradition, radio personality Daddy Ro will serve as narrator of Schwantner's symphonic work, New Morning for the World, which is based upon texts by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Another featured guest artist for the evening is gospel recording artist Paster Joseph Lindsey.

The Symphony will be joined by a massed choir composed of singers from Mt. Canaan Baptist Church, Little Union Baptist Church , Midway Baptist Church and Avenue Baptist Church Choirs, plus the Sanctuary Singers and the Interdenominational Ensemble from ULM under the direction of S. Royce Mosely.

* Fri, Jan 13, 7:30 pm, Shreveport Civic Theater
* Admission taken care of by the Shreveport-Bossier Community Foundation
