Lost Voices: The Music of Black Composers

  • Irvington Presbyterian Church 4181 Irvington Avenue Fremont, CA, 94538 United States (map)

Through centuries of prejudice, these black composers overcame tremendous odds to become masters of their craft. Living in two worlds, each composer drew on jazz harmonies, spirituals and the western classical tradition to create masterworks of stunning beauty. Concertmaster Philip Santos leads the Fremont Symphony String Quartet in a celebration of these awe-inspiring composers.
