SAT 30 APR: RECLAIMED TREASURES

Saturday, April 30, 2022 8:00pm

Event Description

The first in a multi-season exploration of confluence and influence, we explore works of Jewish and Black composers. Jewish composers ErnstToch and Erich Wolfgang Korngold fled to the US from Europe in the 1930s. R. Nathaniel Dett was one of the first conservatory-educated Black musicians in the US. Descended from escaped slaves, Dett was a touring pianist and renowned choir director whose sacred oratorio (written in 1934) is breathtaking.
