Performance Today®

with host Fred Child

: Rediscovering Florence Price

Price's Concerto in One Movement was premiered by pianist Margaret Bonds under the direction of Maestro Ebba Sundstrom with the Women's Symphony Orchestra of Chicago at the 1933-34 World's Fair in Chicago. florenceprice.org

Every day during Black History Month, we'll highlight an African American composer or musician. On Thursday's Performance Today, we'll hear about composer Florence Price, and a story about how a treasure trove of her work was rediscovered.
