Copland House: UNDERSCORED – William Grant Still

May 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

A prodigious, much-honored composer and conductor, William Grant Still was a longtime pioneer on the American music scene. He was the first black composer to have an opera produced by a major U.S. company, to have an opera televised on a national network, and to conduct a major symphony orchestra. When violinist Louis Kaufman offered him a commission, Still produced his glowing Suite for Violin and piano that reflected that illustrious performer’s passion for the visual arts, and interest in a composition melding popular, blues, and jazzy elements with classical forms and techniques.
Please join us for this free, 45-minute-long program, featuring Music from Copland House’s complete performance of Still’s exuberant, affecting work, followed by a live Q&A between viewers and artists.

Music from Copland House featured artists: Curtis Macomber, violinist; Michael Boriskin, pianist.
