POSTPONED "Who Is Florence Price?" Book Launch & Concert

Thursday | September 30 2021 | 2 pm


This event has been postponed. A new date will be announced soon.
Come celebrate the launch of the new children’s book Who Is Florence Price?, written and illustrated by middle school students at Kaufman Music Center’s Special Music School, NYC's only K-12 public school that teaches music as a core subject. Published this fall by Schirmer Books, part of Wise Music Group, the book tells the story of a brilliant musician who prevailed against race and gender prejudices to become the first Black woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer and be performed by a major American orchestra in 1933. Special Music School students will perform works by Price.
