The Ali Center, in partnership with Louisville Public Media’s 90.5 WUOL, presents the modern-day premiere of a recently discovered string quartet by Florence Price.
Price is generally considered the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer. This free family event will feature both music and historical context, with musicians from the Louisville Orchestra, singers from Black Classical Artists of Louisville, and speakers Douglas Shadle (Vanderbilt University) and Eleanor McClellan (University of Northern Alabama).
The performance will also be broadcast live on 90.5 WUOL.
This is part of the "I Am Ali" Festival June 3-July 15, 2017. For a complete list of the Ali Center's "I Am Ali" events, click here.
