A.R.I.S.E. Gordon

Opening with a Spiritual that prompts the students to "Hold On," all will be engaged in the process. 3-5 students will be paired with 1-3 ARISE members to learn and recite something about Gordon Parks' multi-faceted life. All students will sing related music from the Civil Rights movement intermittently, closing with "Lift Ev'ry Voice." This uplifting performance by the A.R.I.S.E. Ensemble is also an optional addition to the A.R.I.S.E. Gordon Story Theatre Residency, in which students will experience a brief performance by the ensemble followed by coaching with members of the ensemble to guide their participation in the elements of storytelling, readers theater and choral music that comprise a complete performance. Students will learn about Gordon Parks and the challenges he faced, and know that the spirit of Gordon Parks -- the drive to overcome -- is in all of us.
