For 36 years, the Classical Roots concert has celebrated African-American contributions to classical music. Led by Thomas Wilkins, former DSO assistant conductor and now Hollywood Bowl principal conductor, this year's program will feature the work of George Walker — the first African American Pulitzer Prize winning composer — performed by his son, violinist Gregory Walker.
