Hello. My name is Eric Meincke and I am a conductor out of Little Rock, AR. On February 26, 2016 at 7:00 PM, the Arkansas Studies Institute, Arkansas Sounds, and the Butler Center is hosting a concert honoring the works of William Grant Still of which I am the conductor.
In addition to Still's music, the music of another prolific African-American composer will be showcased: the music of Florence Price.
Not only will this concert open up a whole new world to an audience who has never experienced this type of music in a live setting before, but it will provide the young musicians performing the music the opportunity to play music that is rarely performed anymore in their context as students. This is a great opportunity for your organization, music education, and the betterment of embodying Mr. Still's music as it lives within us.
Eric Meincke, Conductor of the Arkansas Studies Institute Orchestra (ASIO)
