Persevering Legacy champions a unique, catalytic collaboration that elevates stories of historically marginalized, diverse female composers to align classical music with social activism.

The College of Music will partner with the American Music Research Center (AMRC) and Diverse Musicians' Alliance to present this unique performance event. This free performance features College of Music students performing music written and composed by historically marginalized, diverse female composers.

Performance date and time

Friday, February 5, 7:30 p.m.


Please note: This year, applicants are encouraged to present material outside the AMRC's Helen Walker-Hill collection, a unique collection of rare and seldom performed musical compositions by female African American composers. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the college has limited access to library materials, including this specific collection. The Helen Walker-Hill collection has been used within the previous Persevering Legacy performances and provided the foundation for launching Persevering Legacy series. Limited funding will be available for performers to access music outside of the collections of the music library and AMRC. Apply now
