OBJECTIVE: Heighten awareness of historically significant, but little known, symphonic, chamber, and vocal music -including operas.
The origin of classical music is Europe but deceased and living American composers have made significant contributions within the art form. Among the top American contributors is Pianist, Educator, and Composer George Theophilus Walker. George Walker received the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for LILACS. However, with few exceptions, his extensive compositional output has been neglected or relegated to African American Heritage Month.
