Anthony Green, African American Composer of “Chance” On YouTube

While covering Community MusicWorks and its community-oriented ensemble, the Providence String Quartet, AfriClassical received this information from Heath Marlow, Director of Development & Artistic Program Administrator: “Finally, a young Providence composer with a bright career is Anthony Green. The PSQ played one of his pieces in 2007 and we have commissioned an octet from him for Spring 2009. Here's his website, also a link to the PSQ performing 'Chance' via YouTube”:

His website explains: “Composer, pianist, and educator Anthony Green (b. 1984) has developed his own musical voice through his experience in diverse musical environments.” He says he played classical piano, including works he composed, in the Chopin Club in high school.

Anthony is looking forward to a concert Tuesday, April 8, 2008 at Jordan Hall in Boston at 8:00PM: “Tuesday Night New Music Graduate's Concert”. The evening will feature works by graduating composers at the New England Conservatory. The program will include selections from Anthony's work Dona Nobis Veritatem ~ a setting of American text for viola, soprano, and piano (Ashleigh Gordon, viola and Ms. Ceceilia Allwein, soprano).
