Athens in Harmony is back for a fourth year.

The concert honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy, while acknowledging the work still to be done. It’s designed to break down racial barriers in the community through music.

Executive Producer Pat Priest says artists from different genres will perform duets of popular songs.

“Well that’s exactly why it works, we’re pulling talented people from these different genres, from across differences, and then something kind of sparks because there is so much talent,” Priest said. “Then they get to meet each other, the fans get to meet the other people emanating from that other turn table, so we really are building more of a fusion in Athens which I think is only good on every register.”

The show starts at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Tickets are available online at thefoundryathens.com.

Mokah Jasmine Johnson, president of the AADM and Shane Sims, Chaplin with the ACCPD will emcee the show.
