Composer Omar Thomas Omar Thomas

Omar Thomas says that, in all his years playing in concert bands, he never got to play music celebrating African American traditions. So as a composer, he wrote the piece he wished he could have played. On today's show, hear a vibrant work called Come Sunday, by Omar Thomas, from a concert presented by the Dallas Winds.
