I, Too, Am America: The Music of William Grant Still and Florence Price

Presented by Pittsburgh Opera at Online/Virtual Space

Feb 26 2021
I, Too, Am America: The Music of William Grant Still and Florence Price

Join us for a free concert exploring the music of William Grant Still and Florence Price.

A free concert featuring Pittsburgh Opera Head of Music Glenn Lewis on piano and baritone Yazid Gray.

William Grant Still is often referred to as the Dean of African American composers. Florence Price was the first African American woman to have one of her compositions played by a major orchestra, when the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performed her first symphony in 1933.

Our hope is that their works achieve a greater frequency of performance and that they can take their rightful place
