A call for unity. Florence Price was a pioneer, a key figure in the Black Chicago Renaissance, championed by America’s finest performers. Price’s Third Symphony, written during the height of the Great Depression, combines deep passion with an ear for great tunes and danceable rhythms. Valerie Coleman’s Umoja seeks a union for family, community, nation, and race. Violinist Augustin Hadelich, an international sensation and a St. Louis favorite, plays Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto.
