Florence Price meets Frederick Stock
Rhapsody in Black - Florence Price meets Frederick Stock
Composer Florence Price dealt with many systemic barriers in her pursuit of musical greatness. One barrier was the extreme racial injustices in her home state of Arkansas, which required her to take part in the Great Northern Migration. Even with uprooting her family, Price’s hard work paid off when she won a composition competition and formed a partnership with Chicago Symphony Orchestra conductor Frederick Stock.
