“BLACK BRILLIANCE”
A Celebration of Black Composers

Soulful and energetic works for violin, cello, and piano by
Joplin, Moore, Coleridge-Taylor, Price, and Still

February 10-12, 2023

Join us for this special program to help celebrate Black History Month.  This concert features some wonderful works for violin, cello, and piano by some neglected black composers, including some fun ragtime arrangements by Scott Joplin; two Suites of Spiritual arrangements by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and Undine Smith Moore; and Blues-inspired pieces by Florence Price and William Grant Still.  This is music filled with the pain and anguish of an oppressed people, but also powerful melodies, inspirational themes, and an exciting rhythmic drive. The wonderful Borowsky siblings—Emmanuel on violin and Frances on cello—are back to perform these sadly neglected, but very soulful works of music.
