Take a musical journey through time as the Symphony pays homage to over a century of trailblazing Black artists, from classical music to ragtime, jazz, classic rock, and beyond! Rock out to Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze,” dance to Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer” and Florence Price’s exhilarating “Juba” Dance, and much more! This program will also feature a special performance by American Idol contestant Douglas Mills Jr., and students from Kinder High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
