Florence Price, the first African American female composer to have a symphonic work performed by a major national orchestra, is often compared musically to Dvořák, who also employed sweeping melodies and sampled from African American and Native American music traditions. Along with Rossini’s William Tell Overture, this aesthetically beautiful concert experience will be underscored by a reexamining of our classical music roots.
