The Legacy Show is a multimedia concert of music by African-American composers performed by violinist Tami Lee Hughes and pianist Byron Burford-Phearse. The program features classical music infused with a variety of styles, including spirituals, blues, gospel, hip-hop, and jazz. Portraying cultural themes of the Antebellum Period, the Harlem Renaissance, the Civil Rights Era, and Modern Times, the program includes poetry and visual media projected onto a large screen, providing images of people and places thematically related to the music.

A special component of the program is Songbirds, a tribute to African-American women written by Grammy-nominated music producer and Rock and Roll “Hall of Famer” Kerwin Young. The program also includes Duke Ellington Suite, an homage to one of jazz's great legends, arranged exclusively for The Legacy Show by Ozie Cargile.

The Legacy Show is more than a concert.  It is a musical, cultural, and historical journey guided by the work of prolific American creative artists.   Each artist has a story influenced by his or her experiences.  The Legacy Show reaches into the heart of these stories to celebrate the exuberance of life, and the spirit of triumph over tragedy.  The Legacy Show is for everyone, and it is food for the soul.
