Alarm Will Sound’s St. Louis season ends on May 15th at the Sheldon Concert Hall with a world premiere of music co-created by Allison Loggins-Hull and Toshi Reagon, recipients of support from the Matt Marks Impact Fund. About the new work, Love Always, Loggins-Hull says, “When my son was 4, he had a teacher who brought up Michael Brown’s story during class and throughout the day my son exclaimed that he was afraid of the police. It taught me that despite my son’s very young age and innocence, we were going to have to have these conversations with him sooner than we had hoped.” Ms. Loggins-Hull discovered she could communicate more clearly with her son through letters, following in the tradition of other African-Americans who have done the same. These texts will serve as the foundation for Love Always.
