Friday Music Series: The Music of Florence Price
The Georgetown University Music Program’s Friday Music Series features free concerts on Friday afternoons beginning at 12:30 p.m. in McNeir Hall, New North Building, located on Georgetown University’s main campus in Washington, DC.
This Friday’s performance features Karen Walwyn on piano. Karen Walwyn is the first female African American pianist/composer to receive the Steinway Artist Award. A pioneering Florence Price soloist and scholar, Dr. Walwyn also recorded the premiere recording of the Florence Price Concerto for Piano (“a magnificent account of the concerto displaying her considerable technical skills” –NPR) with the New Black Music Repertory Ensemble, and served as a guest artist on the Emmy-nominated documentary The Caged Bird: The Life and Music of Florence B. Price.
