The music of Florence Price is experiencing renaissance of new appreciation in concert halls across America, but as a black woman in the early 20th century, she was frequently overlooked by publishers and performers. Composing on the cusp of late American romanticism and the dawn of the modern era in music, Florence Price embraced distinctly American genres of music such as African-American spiritual as her thematic foundations, much in the way Antonin Dvorak had exhorted American composers decades earlier.
Featuring Price's Symphony No. 3, this concert celebrates the past and current contributions of black composers to the canon of great American symphonic music.
