To celebrate Black History Month, join Classical 101′s Jennifer Hambrick for gorgeous, refined and elecrifying performances by African American classical musicians this Saturday at 6 pm on The American Sound.
Black History Month gives us an opportunity to do a couple of things. We can put the past and present African-American composers into the spotlight, then make sure that music isn’t returned to the shelf and left unplayed for 11 months.
So much of what gives American classical music its distinctly American sound comes from the rich musical contributions of black American musicians. This Saturday at 6 pm The American Sound begins a month-long celebration of Black History Month.
