PriceFest 2021: A New Black Renaissance


So Many Ways to Support PriceFest 2021!

For the past several months, The International Florence Price Festival, has been meeting to organize our 2nd annual festival. This year's festival entitled PriceFest 2021: A New Black Renaissance will help us to achieve our mission to celebrate the life and legacy of composer Florence Beatrice Price by providing a platform through performances of Price's works alongside historic and new works by Black composers. I am so excited for all of the more than 12 hours of diverse content including: 

  • The premiere of My Lisette - A documentary on the evolution of Haitian folksong 
  • Performances by renowned artists including Marquita Lister, Melissa Givens, and Kevin Wayne Bumpers!
  • Zoom Green Room Sessions where we can all meet the artists and scholars! 
  • A mixed media event from multivalent artist Kamilla Arku. Check out this sneak peak of her work!
