Classical Pacific, Wednesday, June 19, 2019: Juneteenth


  Today is Juneteenth, a celebration that began in Texas in 1865 at the end of slavery. I'll be focusing on African-American composers, conductors and performers today, including William Grant Still, Paul Freeman, Chevalier de Saint-Georges Aynton Marsalis, Billy CHilds, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Althea Waites, Florence Price, Awadagian Pratt, Scott Joplin, George Walker, and André Watts.
