COLCHESTER, Vt. Young musicians from around the region are gearing up for their Winter concert, but this year is special.

The concert falls on Martin Luther King Junior weekend. The kids, who come from Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York, are practicing some tribute pieces.

"We're taking advantage of the opportunity to perform some unique music at the Flynn including this exciting tribute to Martin Luther King that was composed by Duke Ellington, the great jazz composer and pianist, who wrote this suite called the Three Black Kings, the last movement of which is dedicated to Martin Luther King," Music director Benjamin Klemme said.

The Depictions of a Dream concert is next Sunday at 3 p.m.
