Who are the role models of Classical music? We can all rattle off Mozart and Beethoven. Some folks even talk about learning music through the Bs (Bach, Beethoven, Brahms…). But where is the heritage of composers of color and female composers? You don’t come across Chevalier de Saint-Georges or Florence Price in any survey course on music history, but these men and women DID exist, and their works deserve to be heard. Continuing our series on the lineage and heritage of composers of color and female composers, UPNYC will present referential works by living composers Jennifer Jolley and Evan Williams, and an early masterpiece by late 19th/early 20th century composer S. Coleridge Taylor.

Jolley’s piece Spielzeug Straßenbahn is a reimagined Brandenburg Concerto (after the series of so-named works by J.S. Bach), built on the sound of Chicago’s trains. Williams’s work, too, features harpsichord and leans on inspirations ranging from a Lutheran chorale tune to Nina Simone. We are joined for both works by international soloists Daniel Walden.

Please take a moment to check out our video series COMPOSER SHORTS with Evan Williams, and on S. Coleridge Taylor. Christ & St. Stephen’s Church is an intimate space perfect for this music, but also very likely to sell out--so please purchase your tickets early to avoid missing this once-in-a-lifetime program.
