<![CDATA[Concert: I Go on Singing: Paul Robeson's Life in Song]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/01/15/concert-i-go-on-singing-paul-robesons-life-in-song http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/01/15/concert-i-go-on-singing-paul-robesons-life-in-song Date: January 15, 2017

I Go On Singing: Paul Robeson’s Life in Song captures the essence of this monumental 20th-century figure. Robeson was an all-American athlete, scholar, international recording artist, and star of stage and screen. Regarded as the best-known African American entertainer in the world during his lifetime, he was also a courageous example of integrity and discipline in service of peace. The concert combines song (including “Old Man River”), narratives, news clips, and excerpts from an interview with Robeson’s friend, the legendary folksinger/songwriter Pete Seeger. Robeson is portrayed by American baritone Anthony Brown, about whom The Denver Post declared that “Brown delivers with generous beauty.”

Performances begin at 2:00 p.m. and last approximately one hour with no intermission.

Start time: 2:00 pm

End time: 3:00 pm
