Join Westminster Choir College for the Celebration of Black Music Lecture Recital.
Westminster Choir College will host the inaugural Celebration of Black Music on March 24-25, 2023. While the breadth and depth of music by those of African descent have had a place on our campus since its inception, this multi day program is the first of its kind. This year will prominently feature the music of George Walker, the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music, who is being celebrated in the musical world in his centennial year. The two day celebration schedule is as follows:
Friday, March 24
Lecture: Sight, Sound & Spirit: the Connective Tissue of Black Music
Join Dr. James Jordan, Director of Choral Studies and Professor Vinroy D. Brown, Jr., Conductor of the Westminster Jubilee Singers for a conversation about the intersectionality of music and spirituality. This open dialogue will provide insight on the contributions of the composers who will be featured throughout the weekend, as well as reflect on the work of Elaine Brown and John Finley Williamson.
