Composer Hannibal Lokumbe, a string quartet of Philadelphia Orchestra musicians and vocalist Tulivu-Donna Cumberbatch will perform on a musical museum crawl taking place Saturday, Feb. 25.

The first stop on the crawl is the African American Museum in Philadelphia. The concert will begin at 1:30 p.m. 

From there, audience members and musicians will head to the National Museum of American Jewish History for a 3 p.m. show. It's a two-block walk.

The performances will honor two heroic women: Anne Frank and Fannie Lou Hamer.

Concert-goers are invited to visit both museums free of charge. Registration is required, however.

Lokumbe, who has a three-year residency with The Philadelphia Orchestra, will be performing and meeting with community organizations throughout his time with the orchestra. 

He will be gathering inspiration for a community-commissioned piece titled "Healing Tones."
