Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight

Sat, May 4, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Florence Price (1887–1953) was the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphony composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra. In 2009, a substantial collection of her works and papers was found in an abandoned house on the outskirts of Chicago, Illinois. Among these works was Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight, a 30-minute work for chorus, soloists, and piano, set to a poem by Vachel Lindsay. Join us in what is believed to be the first performance of this outstanding work! Also on the program are songs by George Gershwin.
