Antigone in Ferguson: A Journey Through Philip Woodmore
When Michael Brown was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson in 2014, the world took notice. He wasn't the first Black man to be a victim of police brutality and the way we are going, he won't be the last. But there are people in the world - of all races and religions - doing important work to create dynamic discussions and shed light on understanding where society has gone wrong. 

One such important work is Antigone in Ferguson. This is the story of that life-changing piece of theater, led by Bryan Doerries of Theater of War Productions, with music composed and directed by Dr. Philip A. Woodmore. In this book, you will discover the transformative power of music (when interwoven with the drama of Greek tragedy) to change people’s thinking and actions regarding injustice on the macro and micro level in our modern society. This transformation in thinking leads to healing discussions that produce effective, pervasive, and long-lasting actions. Dr. Philip A. Woodmore will be your guide as we investigate and interrogate the journey to this thrilling transformation. Dr. Woodmore is a nationally recognized music educator who specializes in composition, vocal coaching, choral curriculum and programming, and collaborative rehearsing. Using his expertise, he has composed an original score and lyrics to Sophocles’ tragedy, Antigone, which has become an Off-Broadway smash-hit known as Antigone in Ferguson.
