Redefining American Music Rhiannon Giddens and Friends Rediscover the Incredible Black Composer
Friday, May 24th, 2019
8:00 PM
Boston Symphony Hall
301 Massachusetts Ave, Boston, MA 02115
Rhiannon Giddens curates this dynamic concert to rediscover the great Black composers who have been hiding in plain sight in every genre of music. Explore Samuel Coleridge- Taylor whose choral music once rivaled Handel’s Messiah to Billy Strayhorn, the genius behind Duke Ellington who wrote “Take the A-Train” and “Day Dream,” and Eubie Blake, composer of the groundbreaking Broadway musical Shuffle Along. We’ll also remember the ladies with Florence Price, the first black woman to have her symphony performed by a major orchestra, and Hazel Scott, the jazz and piano prodigy who became a Hollywood, Broadway and television star. Rhiannon will be joined by collaborators vocalist Darius de Haas (Broadway’s Shuffle Along) and pianist Lara Downes, whose playing has been described as “luscious, moody and dreamy” by the New York Times.
