The Tallest Tree in the Forest is a play about the life of one of the most dynamic figures in American History – Paul Robeson.
Robeson was a scholar, an athlete, an activist, a vocalist, attorney of law, and a celebrated actor of stage and screen. Born the son of a slave, he rose to the heights of fame.
Kenny Seymour serves as Music Director, Arranger and Creator of incidental Music for this powerful piece.
"The musical passages are consistently impressive. Beaty performs to accompaniment performed by musical director/keyboardist Kenny J. Seymour....... Seymour's arrangements often create new, nuanced settings for even the most familiar compositions.
