The Unsung Collective Celebrates The Black Experience At The Oculus

Saturday is Juneteenth, a day that commemorates the effective end of slavery in the United States. To mark this important day, the main floor of the Oculus (a.k.a. Westfield World Trade Center) will host the New York-based orchestra The Unsung Collective, who will perform four classical compositions written by Black composers to celebrate stories of the Black experience.

Director Tyrone Clinton Jr. will lead his ensemble through a classical music performance narrating historical stories that connect to today. And keep your camera handy that day, as The Oculus will light up in red, black and green to celebrate Black culture. The performance will take place on Saturday, June 19, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
