“Lift Every Voice” is scheduled to take place at the Fairchild Theatre on Monday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m.

“This year’s West Circle Series truly has something for everyone,” says Director Deborah Moriarty. “The slate of performances reflects the diversity and breadth of music in all its form, with our kick-off concert featuring storytelling that will give our audience insight into the performers and the music that is their life.”
