Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, born to a plantation owner and a slave, became a virtuoso violinist and composer — combining the folk songs of his childhood in Guadeloupe with the sounds of Mozart. Florence Price was the first African American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer. Duke Ellington described his elegy to Harlem: “You may hear a parade go by, or a funeral, or you may recognize those who are making Civil Rights demands.”
Michael Morgan, Music Director and Conductor
Shawnette Sulker, Soprano Soloist
