March 2020 – The Quarantine Edition
Less Talk. More Music.
Cause maybe, at this point in the quarantine, you’re tired of watching a screen. Take a mental vacation by LISTENING to new music from Jonathan Bingham. Hear why pianist Richard Valitutto feels it’s his duty to perform George Walker’s music. Then listen to him perform it. We also have some information on how some struggling music groups can get financial help. Then there’s Mr. Macaronii’s hilarious song about washing your hands.

AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH 2020
In this African-American History Month (I still call it Black History Month) there is positive news about the inclusion of people of color in the mainstream world of classical music. In our main interview, Samuel Thompson of Baltimore talks about the organizations committed to it. Still there’s some not so good news about it when it comes to the statistics. That means you should apply for some of the workshops and competitions mentioned in the show. Thank you for listening to Classical Music In Color. Click on the links for more information. TRT: 19.56
Finally, a documentary about African-American Opera Singers
As we move deeper into the 21st century, the African-American opera legends (pictured above) who broke barriers in the mid-20th century are slowly, but surely, leaving us. Now comes a trio of producers who are making a documentary about them, their struggles and their triumphs. That’s our main story on this the January 2020 edition of Classical Music In Color. There are so many other stories in this show, including a couple of competitions you should enter. Click on the photos below for links. And THANK YOU FOR LISTENING.
