The first African-American woman composer to earn national recognition, Florence Price focused her compositions on the Black American Experience. Her Dances in the Canebrakes depicts the life of cotton-plant workers in the south, full of dance and contentment. Mozart‘s exuberant flute concerto was written when the young composer traveled to Mannheim, soaking up the new possibilities of a great orchestra of his time and falling in love for the first time. Mendelssohn‘s quintessential sunshine symphony – the Italian – will close the program.

With flutist Demarre McGill and Conductor Julia Tai.
