Speaker: Michelle Cann, pianist
The ethnocultural diversity of our nation is among our greatest strengths, but representation among performers, composers, and audience members of classical music has not reflected that diversity. The programming of works by underrepresented composers can educate all of us, and empower our next generation. In this Inside Pitch, trailblazing pianist Michelle Cann discusses how composers such as Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Adolphus Hailstork, and Nokuthula Ngwenyama can inspire young Black music-lovers.
Available to watch live at Elley-Long or on-demand through streaming any time after the in-person premiere. All Inside Pitch events are included with the purchase of a Grand Festival Pass.
