Persevering Legacy (2019)

Persevering Legacy champions a catalytic collaboration that will elevate stories of historically marginalized female African-American composers to align classical music with social activism. The College of Music's American Music Research Center (AMRC) partners with the college's Diverse Musicians' Alliance and the Museum of Boulder to pilot a socially engaged performance and workshop event as part of a broader celebration during Women’s History Month.

Performance date and time:

Saturday, Mar. 9, 1:00 p.m.


This free public performance will feature College of Music faculty and students performing selections from the AMRC’s Helen Walker-Hill Collection, a unique collection of rare and seldom performed musical compositions by female African-American composers. The workshop component, led by members of the Museum of Boulder’s existing Inclusipedia project, will give volunteers the necessary skills for creating and editing Wikipedia pages to add women and people of color from Boulder’s past and present to the website.

This program features specially selected College of Music faculty and students who are dedicated to raising awareness for equity, diversity, inclusion and access in music performance.
