About This Performance
In the Roaring Twenties, there was a great outburst of African-American art and culture centered in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan. Composer William Grant Still was a big part of this, writing for jazz bands and radio shows before moving to Los Angeles to work in films. He filled his symphonies with the sound of the blues and African-American spirituals.
