Event Details

Pianist, organist and composer Rashaan Rori Allwood, Violinist Tanya Charles Iveniuk, Trumpeter William Franklyn Leathers and Soprano Nadine Anyan will surprise and delight you with the music of Black composers whose names have been neglected in Western classical music tradition, and who you will want to add to your playlist. From the great Joseph Bologne, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, prolific composer, violinist and conductor who was born to an enslaved Black woman in 1745 in the French colony of Guadeloupe; to the self taught Errol Garner who never read music yet produced extraordinary jazz compositions such as the popular ‘Misty’. Enjoy a special treat of poetry of Langston Hughes set to music. Then be awed by young Rashaan Allwood who offers a selection of his own compositions.

Opening Performance (online): Monday, February 1, 2021 @ 8 – 9:30 PM EDT
