Wednesday, June 22, 2016 The Caged Bird: Rarely Heard Music of Florence Price Closes 2016 KUAF Fulbright Chamber Festival

Hi William;

   Thanks for sharing this with me.  I just returned from this event and it went real well - there were about 200+ people there.  It began with a really excellent string quartet performing Price's "Folksongs in Counterpoint" and her recently found "String Quartet in G" from 1929.  This was followed by a screening of the documentary.  Crystal Bridges museum is a wonderful museum of American art, and they have a very nice hall in which this concert was held.

   I'm also pleased to say that "The Caged Bird" was accepted by the Black Harvest Film Fest in Chicago and will be shown sometime in August at the Gene Siskel Film Center.

Best Wishes,

Jim Greeson
