Persevering Legacy

Join us for an amazing night of music celebrating the incredible works of women composers such as Alexandra Gardner, Inez McComas, Florence B. Price, Jessie Montgomery and Margaret Bonds. Talented students from the College of Music will perform a wide range of vocals and instrumentals that have been hand-selected by the artists themselves.

Alexandra Gardner: Lantana 
Inez McComas: Unsheltered 
Florence B. Price: "Hold Fast to Dreams"
Jessie Montgomery: Rhapsody No.1
Margaret Bonds: "Peter, Go Ring Dem Bells"

The CU Boulder College of Music brings esteemed professional musicians from around the world together with students for an in-depth study of music performance. Audiences may observe students performing excerpts from pieces in their repertoire then exploring the work further with one-on-one coaching.
