700 F Street NE, Washington, District of Columbia
Pershing’s Own Chamber Players present works to celebrate African-American composers of our past and present. Florence Price and George Walker helped pave the way by becoming “firsts.” Price was the first African-American woman to have her work performed by a major symphony orchestra, and Walker was the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize, as well becoming the first to graduate from the Curtis Institute and receive a doctorate from the Eastman School of Music.

African-American musicians and composers continue to contribute to the fabric of our nation’s musical history. The unique combination of jazz styles, church melodies, and western influences creates an invaluable layer to our cultural identity.

The program includes String Quartet No. 1 by George Walker, The Gift of Life by Jeff Scott, Fanmi Imen by Valerie Coleman, Reflected Air by Jeffrey Mumford, and songs by Florence Price and Margaret Bonds.
