We are quickly approaching the end of the 2015-2016 concert season – but that hasn’t slowed down the pace of excellent concerts happening across the country. This weekend two winners of WPA Performance Grants will present works by women.
On Saturday and Sunday the Williamsburg Symphonia will present Florence Price’s Symphony No. 3. We are thrilled that this historic piece is being performed, and how appropriate that it will be heard just days after Price’s birthday! This important work was recorded by The Women’s Philharmonic with Apo Hsu conducting and is available for sale in the WPA shop.
Learn more about the concert, the ensemble, and conductor Janna Hymes here, and be sure to learn more about this important works in the concert’s program notes which are available online. And if you can’t make it to the concert, have a listen below:
On Sunday, April 17, the Georgia Tech Symphony Orchestra will perform a the world premiere of Fluorescence of Moss by Hsin-Lei Chen, a rising Taiwanese composer. This is one of several GTSO commissions that will receive premieres. Learn more about the concert here.
Congratulations to both ensembles!
