Celebrating Black Composers

Sunday, January 31 at 5pm PST

We hope you enjoyed this fun, free virtual event! Check out our upcoming events here.

On the eve of Black History month, you'll hear some truly wonderful music by composers William Grant Still, Florence Price, and 2020 Pulitzer Prize winner Anthony Davis. You'll learn about the remarkable lives of these groundbreaking musicians and why you should always check your attic for precious, lost manuscripts!  This session will be led by our Artistic Director, Dana Sadava.

Watch a recording of this session:
