Women in Music

Soloist: Susan Powell, percussion

Discover newly found music by an American treasure, Florence B. Price. The music of this great American composer is beautiful, historic and inspiring, as you’ll hear with her Dances in the Canebreaks and Symphony No. 3. We’ll also feature NGSO percussionist, Susan Powell performing Jennifer Higdon’s amazing Percussion Concerto. Critics call this piece “A technical triumph” with the soloist dancing in and out of the orchestra playing multiple instruments. It will be a joy to see and to hear.”
