Caged Bird: the Life and Music of Florence B. Pric

DAILY SCHEDULE | PROGRAMS A-Z

In 1933 Florence B Price made music history as the first African-American woman to have her music performed by a major symphony orchestra when the Chicago Symphony premiered her Symphony in E minor at the 1933 World's Fair. She composed songs for the great singer Marian Anderson who sang Price's music at her legendary at the Lincoln Memorial performance in 1939 - a watershed moment in civil rights history. This is the inspiring story of a gifted woman's triumph over prejudice and preconceptions.
