unknown

Lakewold Gardens was thrilled to receive first-time support from the National Endowment for the Arts to present Unknown. Originally written for three singers and chamber ensemble to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Solider in 2021, composer Shawn Okpebholo's and poet Marcus Amaker's song cycle Unknown explores ideas of war, honor, and memory through the eyes of soldiers, family members, and Tomb Guards who are connected to each other and the Tomb through their mutual service and sacrifice.

This performance was a special arrangement for voice and piano adapted by the composer for the intimate setting at Lakewold Gardens.
