Friday, February 26, 2021 Colour of Music Festival and AARP Florida Celebrate Black History Month: Special Virtual Performance Saturday, February 27, 7:30 PM ET

February 26, 2021 Charleston SC —The Colour of Music Festival and AARP Florida are partnering to offer a special virtual evening of classical music in honor of Black History Month on Saturday, February 27 at 7:30pm, free for AARP members and $25 for the general public. This one-hour showcase of chamber presentations introduces the AARP Florida membership and the general public to black classical artists from Germany, Colombia, the Caribbean, and United States.

Since 2013, the Colour of Music Festival has brought classically trained black musicians and composers of African descent together to offer the public an opportunity to share their musical talents, knowledge, and inspiration. Today thousands of talented black classical performers have had few opportunities to grace concert stages.

“Our patron base consists of many AARP members. AARP’s mission has served the interest of our citizens in a profound manner since its inception in 1958; we are honored AARP Florida embraces our mission of inclusiveness with its keen focus on supporting a vast underserved population, not only in Florida, but nationally,” says Festival’s founder and artistic director Lee Pringle.

The program will feature octets, quintets, quartets, trios, and duos and includes works by Felix Mendelsohn, black female composer Florence B. Price, along with spotlights from rising black composer, Valerie Coleman.

A special presentation streamed from Murray Center located at historic 14 George Street (Charleston SC) will showcase a Porgy and Bess arrangement by Igor Frolov for violin and piano that will have you on the edge of your seat.
