The Chicago Children’s Choir commissioned Freedom Train for its 50th anniversary season. The soulful piano introduction sets up the treble voices for a train whistle-style entrance. The tenor and bass enter with a rousing “all aboard” sung in call and response fashion. I selected this piece for our upcoming spring concert to fit in with our “Human Rights and Social Justice” theme. Rollo Dilworth has taken historical events and themes and created a meaningfully inspirational and fun selection.
