Members of Denver’s The Spirituals Project choir perform in the CPR Performance Studio on Jan. 18, 2018.

Juneteenth is now a federal holiday and to mark the occasion, we present an encore of music that grew out of tremendous pain, but led to hope. The Spirituals Project Choir is based at the University of Denver's Lamont School of Music. The choir joined us in 2018. Also listen to CPR Classical's "Journey to Freedom: The Spirituals Radio Project."
