The Power of Art: How music and theater transform communities

Art can be more than an expression of beauty. It can challenge perspectives, change minds or even be a call to action.

This week on The Full Story we feature three people who take art to the next level. First, we speak with a doctor of music who created a choral group to perform a classical piece about lynching Then a pair of playwrights talk about their immersive musical that changes with each new audience.

Dr. Jonathan Berryman, the founder, and director of the Heritage Chorale of New Haven

The Heritage Chorale of New Haven will perform at the Six Degrees of Separation Through Music event at The New Haven Museum on March 1, 2023.
