Juneteenth Live Concert Presented Virtually
We are excited to announce the closing reception of this year’s African American Composers’ Series to be held as a celebration of Juneteenth. Each year we curate an exhibition of physical archives, art and albums. We support that program and our deep dig into the featured composer by offering a free education program teaching lessons in the arts through the lens of the featured composer. We also host a live concert, coordinated by band leader and extraordinary musician Marcus L. Miller exploring the sounds of the composer, or musical movement. For Junteenth, Marcus is organizing a retrospective concert, bringing back musicians from the past while inducting new talent.
Join us virtually Saturday, June 19 from 3 – 6 pm to experience this amazing concert coming at you live from the William Grant Still Arts Center, featuring: Kamau Daáood, Dwight Tribble, Gregg Wright, Maiya Sykes, Dexter Story, Mark Broyard, Derf Reklaw, Dale Williams and many more.
The event is free. RSVP to this email or to firstname.lastname@example.org
