Black Pearls @ the Barnes
March 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:40 pmFree
In the Year of the Woman – and the 10th anniversary year of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra – the Black Pearls are celebrating the contributions of African-American women composers and performers of classical music.
On March 6 at the Barnes, the orchestra will perform works of Florence Price, the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra.
This concert has been generously underwritten by a grant from the Presser Foundation.
