In troubled times, music is a source of hope and healing. In a virtual interview and concert with WFMT's George Preston, pianist Lara Downes performs selections from her new album, Some of These Days. Pieces include Spirituals and freedom songs which are rooted in the history of African-American music.

The concert and interview will premiere at noon CT and will remain visible for on-demand viewing. You can make a gift to WFMT and get Lara’s new album at wfmt.com/donate.
