2022 Summer Strings Camp

Last concert of our 2021-2022 Season

Thanks to all of you who attended one of our three "Celebrating Juneteenth and Black composers of classical music" concerts! Featuring celebrated soprano and versatile local chorus master, Alfrelynn Roberts, in a program of John Carter and Courtney Carey’s arrangement’s of traditional spirituals "I Wanna Be Ready" and "Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel". The exploration includes works of local protégé Quinn Mason in Petite Symphonie de Chambre Contemporaine (après Milhaud), honoring French composer Darius Milhaud, and Florence Price’s rhythmically appealing Adoration. Afro Cuban Jose White Lafitte was a composer with an exceptional career in teaching and performing, starting from the Paris Conservatory and leading to court musician in Brazil, represented in our program with La Bella Cubana. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor is the outlier in our programming, London born and educated he writes in the romantic European style of the 19th C with nary a hint of the Americas heard among the others. It’s a program of revelation of and honor to composers who have overcome and succeeded.
