Rosemarie Cook-Glover, Treasurer, Southeast Symphony Association: 'Your comment regarding the lack of African American composers is well taken.'
Comments by email:
1) Several years ago, I attended Jelly's Last Jam at the Los Angeles Music Center. Jelly's Last Jam appeared on Broadway in 1992. Composers Jelly Roll Morton and Luther Henderson have deep Los Angeles connections. Morton is buried in Los Angeles. I am not sure about Henderson but I have met his son in Los Angeles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelly's_Last_Jam [John Malveaux]
2) Sorry I missed seeing you. Glad you were there. Your comment regarding the lack of African American composers is well taken. I will mention this at our next Board meeting. Rosemarie [Rosemarie Cook-Glover, Treasurer, Southeast Symphony Association]
