Rediscovered: A Lecture Concert on the Music of Florence Price

Florence Price was the first African-American woman to have her music performed by a major symphony orchestra — in 1933. Bringing together the European classical tradition in which she was trained and the haunting melodies of African-American spirituals and folk tunes, Price’s music has experienced a recent resurgence in the concert hall. Joining Douglas Shadle and the Vanderbilt Symphonic Choir is countertenor Patrick Dailey from Tennessee State University, who will perform some of Price’s arrangements of African-American spirituals.

Presented with gratitude to the Blair KeyBoard for its generous support of the school

This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the West Garage (2500 Children's Way) free of charge.
