DANCING IN THE SUN

WITH DEMARRE MCGILL

JULIA TAI, CONDUCTOR

IN-PERSON AND LIVESTREAMED

TOWN HALL SEATTLE

SUNDAY, JANUARY 30 @ 2:00PM (PST)

The first African-American woman composer to earn national recognition, Florence Price focused her compositions on the Black American Experience. Her Dances in the Canebrakes depicts the life of cotton-plant workers in the south, full of dance and contentment. Mozart‘s exuberant flute concerto was written when the young composer traveled to Mannheim, soaking up the new possibilities of a great orchestra of his time and falling in love for the first time. Mendelssohn‘s quintessential sunshine symphony – the Italian – will close the program.

PROGRAM:

Price: Dances in the Canebrakes

Mozart: Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major 

Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 4, op. 90 A major “Italian”
