South Dakota Symphony Orchestra’s Lakota Music Project will be in Washington, D.C. for the first time. The Lakota Music Project is the flagship community engagement program of the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra (SDSO). In performing Native and non-Native music, the project seeks to create an environment of openness that treats both cultures with dignity and respect. Enjoy this musical collaboration by members of the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, Lakota singer Emmanuel Black Bear (Oglala Sioux Tribe), and cedar flutist Bryan Akipa (Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate). The performance will include commissioned works by Akipa and Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate (Chickasaw Nation), participants in the SDSO’s Music Composition Academies.
