Composer Adolphus Hailstork amplifies Black voices with his music
Rhapsody in Black - Adolphus Hailstork
Composer Adolphus Hailstork has had his music performed by major orchestras and ensembles around the world since the 1970s. He often uses his music to amplify Black voices and now his new work, America’s Requiem: A Knee on the Neck, speaks directly to the murder of George Floyd.
