Hi all,
I'm very excited to present a program this afternoon featuring solo piano works by Florence Price, Willie "The Lion" Smith, James P. Johnson, and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. These unique pieces range in style from Romantic to Stride and Blues.

I've been thinking a lot about the recent police brutality incidents and share this program in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. I will donate 50% of the proceeds from this event to the Sphinx Organization: http://www.sphinxmusic.org/
The Sphinx Organization is a social justice organization that addresses the underrepresentation of people of color in classical music, and supports diversity and inclusion in the field.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
--Moriah
