Join the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra for Wade in the Water as we share the Indiana premiere of Florence Price’s Symphony No. 4 in D minor. Included in the program is a guest appearance by tenor, scholar, and cultural activist Dr. Marquese Carter  who will perform and share insights on Price’s art songs, expand on her historical context, the renaissance of her music in the last few years, and address why her music and that of other composers of color have been historically overlooked. Written in 1945, Price’s 4th Symphony has only been performed a few times since its 2018 premiere. Help raise awareness for one of the most important musical voices in the United States, and be one of the few people to experience the piece live!
