Joel Thompson: Seven Last Words

Vesper Concerts presents another one-of-a-kind Choral Collaborative Residency with Dr. Derrick Fox and the choirs of University of Nebraska-Omaha featuring composer Joel Thompson and invited community organizations to participate in the work Seven Last Words of the Unarmed, a choral work about complex issues of race and violence. Joel wrote this piece after being troubled by the onslaught of killings of unarmed black men. These African-American men are the subject of a powerful multi-movement choral work.
