American Symphony Orchestra’s Quartet
October 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$50
We are pleased to welcome a string quartet featuring members from the American Symphony Orchestra. The program was curated by violinist Phillip Payton to celebrate and explore the significant contributions to classical music by Black composers. Audience members will have a chance to hear music ranging from traditional gospel and folk songs arranged for string quartet by Florence Price—the first Black woman to have a composition performed by a major orchestra—to mesmerizing works by contemporary composers Jessie Montgomery and Trevor Weston. Rain date, Sunday, October 18, 2020. $50 for an 8’x8′ block that accommodates up to two patrons.
