Badger Talks Live - WPR's Stephanie Elkins on Black composer Florence Price

Speaker: Stephanie Elkins, Wisconsin Public Radio Host

Event Details

Tuesday, March 2, 2021
12 p.m.
Join WPR’s “Morning Classics” host Stephanie Elkins in a free live online conversation about composer Florence Price, as part of UW-Madison’s Badger Talks Live series on March 2 at noon. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra premiered Price’s Symphony No. 1 in 1933, yet the Black composer’s work disappeared after her death in the 1950s. House renovators rescued Price’s hand-written scores from the trash in 2009, and her work is now being performed and recorded again.
