Program Notes

Hymn for Emmanuel is a tribute to the nine people who lost their lives in the 2015 church shooting in Charleston, S.C.

- Program Note from Yale University Concert Band concert program, 19 February 2016

The Charleston church shooting (also known as the Charleston church massacre) was a mass shooting on June 17, 2015, in Charleston, South Carolina, in which nine African Americans were killed during a Bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Among those killed was the senior pastor, state senator Clementa C. Pinckney; three victims survived. This church is one of the oldest black churches in the United States, and it has long been a center for organizing related to civil rights. Police arrested Dylann Roof in Shelby, North Carolina; the 21-year-old white supremacist had attended the Bible study before shooting. He was found to have targeted members of this church because of its history and stature. He was convicted and sentenced to be executed.
