One of the truly honorable cultural institutions in our country has to be Black History Month. For a country whose story has for so long been defined by the color line and all of the pain and horrors that that has entailed, it is a genuine sign of growth and reconciliation that every year, a month is devoted to explicitly celebrating the transformational uplift and impact the African American community has had on these United States and on all of humanity. That's of course not to say there aren't many miles to go and rivers to cross before reaching the Promise Land, but BHM truthfully manifests an arc bent towards Justice.

We at Groupmuse try to do our part, and, thanks to our friends at MusicTalks, we can really do it right this year. So please, join us at the beautiful Interface NYC on February 8th for our [Black History Massivemuse.](www.groupmuse.com/events/7822)

MusicTalks has partnered with Diverse Concert Artists and an all-African American string quartet to play an evening of masterworks by composers of African descent from throughout the ages that the History Books have unsurprisingly neglected. Until now.

We'll have a string quartet by Chevalier Saint George - born in Guadalupe, 1745 to a wealthy planter and the enslaved woman he kept, Saint George is widely regarded as the first classical composer of African descent.

Then it'll be Florence Price - and her sublime "Five Folksongs in Counterpoint". Born in 1887, she's regarded as the first significant female African American composer. And boy is she great.

Then we'll have some Duke Ellington, and Sir Duke needs no descriptor.

We'll finish with a piece called "Voodoo Dolls" by Jesse Montgomery, a composer alive, young, and writing some of the most dynamic and exciting classical music today.

It really will be an incredible evening of music, remembrance, and celebration and we hope you'll join us.
