Prepare to hear the sounds of three very different African-American composers from different eras of classical music in the 20th century. On the album African-American Voices II, curated and conducted by Kellen Gray, there’s Margaret Bonds and the music of Ulysses Kay and Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson.
Kellen Gray is coming stateside next month (January) to work in Minnesota and in Washington, DC.
Here are the links to the opportunities I mentioned.
