AdvertisementFulcrum Point New Music Project presents our 24th Annual Concert for Peace with a full performance of Dutch avant-pop composer Jacob TV's "The Freedom Songs."
In autumn 2021, Fulcrum Point's Stephen Burns, Steve Roberts and special guest Cynthia Yeh traveled to the Netherlands to join composer Jacob TV for a European tour of The Freedom Songs.
Now Jacob TV travels to Chicago to join us for our Annual Concert for Peace, originally scheduled for 2021 but postponed due to Covid travel restrictions.
The Freedom Songs is a multi-media ode to freedom, composed 75 years after the liberation from fascism in Europe, commissioned by Fulcrum Point New Music Project with financial support from the FPA.
Franklin D. Roosevelt's Four Freedoms (freedom of speech and expression, freedom to worship God in his own way, freedom from want, and freedom from fear) along with poems and quotes from politicians, writers, poets and philosophers like the Buddha, Malcom X, Hegel, Yeats and Martin Luther King, were the inspiration to compose The Freedom Songs.
