Intersection: String Quartets by Hannibal Lokumbe

Musical performance. Free & open to the public.

 May 26, 2018  11:00 am  Main Public Library Auditorium  

Intersection presents two string quartets by composer Hannibal Lokumbe exploring the lives of two heroic women: Anne Frank and Fannie Lou Hamer. Both works highlight the power of the voice, both written and vocal, in resisting oppression and crying for freedom. The performance features Intersection instrumentalists and contralto Gwendolyn Brown. Lokumbe says, “The Anne Frank piece I wrote because I wanted to make sure I make a musical statement of thanks and gratitude to her.  As a child of color growing up in Texas, it meant a lot for me to read her diary. It let me know that insanity was not confined to the part of the world I lived in only.”


Metro government is modernizing the parking garage adjacent to the Main Library. Approximately 360 spaces will be added and other improvements will be made to the garage. Several parking spaces are temporarily closed for the duration of construction. Project completion is expected in late spring of 2018. Due to the temporary parking space decrease, please allow extra time when planning your visit. We also recommend using Nashville MTA’s free Music City Circuit buses, which make regular stops at 5th Ave. N. & Church St. Click here for more information.
