FEATURING LEOTHA STANLEY AND FRIENDS, with Gospel Favorites

Bringing Us Together - Put a Little Love in Your Heart features local singer-songwriter, composer, and arranger Leotha Stanley and Friends gospel choir

Guest soloist, Marianna Malinkine, pianist, is our Young Artist Concerto Competition 2021 Winner. She will be performing Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23.

Our program celebrates diversity with music by African American composers, women composers and contemporary composers. Featured on tonight’s program will be the Symphony No. 6 by William Banfield, an award-winning composer whose symphonies, operas, and chamber works have been performed and recorded by symphonies across the country.

William Grant Still's Scherzo from his Afro American Symphony from 1931 is the first symphony written by an African American and performed for an audience by a leading American orchestra. Valerie Coleman’s Umoja, Anthem for Unity from 2018 and Michael Daugherty’s Strut for strings inspired by Paul Robeson are also featured in tonight's program, Bringing Us Together.
