AACI Concert "Hold Fast To Dreams"
The African American Composer Initiative is proud to present our 11th Annual concert set,"Hold Fast to Dreams." These words by poet Langston Hughes set the tone for the music on this year's program: music uplifting and sustaining to the spirit.

Concerts are Saturday and Sunday, January 25 and 26, 3pm at Eastside College Preparatory School in East Palo Alto.
