Program Notes

In God I Pray, listeners are invited to give thanks for each day and contemplate how they can help make the world a better place.

- Program Note from University of Maryland Wind Orchestra concert program, 7 May 2022


God I Pray is one component of a concept entitled Classically Dope. Classically Dope is a hip-hop and classical music collaboration featuring DC rapper Konshens the MC. Using music as an instrument of positive social influence, the ensemble tackles subjects such as the power of belief, racial inequality, stereotypes, police brutality, and being a change agent in the world. Combining two genres that are typically seen as polar opposites, this fusion brings diverse communities together by showing that a common love for music transcends geography, race, age, values, and socioeconomic status. The focus is on what makes us alike and how we can always find commonality, empathy, and relatability with every person in our day-to-day lives.
