Trayvon Martin. Oscar Grant. Eric Garner. Kenneth Chamberlain. Amadou Diallo. John Crawford. These names will be front and center on Sunday as, for its next show, the Turtle Creek Chorale presents its small ensemble showcase Words, which looks to be a powerful show that also serves as a memorial to those seven Black men who were victims of police brutality and others in authority.

The concert is likely to be an emotional one, but it will also offer hope. “When you hear these words sung, it will really be a profound experience,” TCC Artistic Director Sean Baugh said. “The songs will make you look at their lives differently, especially when you hear the final words spoken by these victims sung by the chorale.” TCC small ensembles will perform Words Sunday at 6 p.m.

at First Presbyterian Church. This season, the chorale has been exploring racial inequity. That was most recently seen in last summer’s performance of Dreamland: Tulsa 1921, based on the incidents of the 1921 Tulsa massacre of about 300 Black residents in the area known as Black Wall Street.
