The Amherst College Department of Music presents "Black Music Matters - Part One," a virtual performance of unjustly neglected masterpieces by Black composers for the concert hall.

More than 50 gifted student classical instrumentalists currently in residence on the Amherst College campus showcase their talents in all-new content ranging from string quartets, brass and woodwind quintets, to small chamber orchestras. Featured composers include Scott Joplin, William Grant Still, Florence Price, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, George Walker, Margaret Bonds, Nathaniel Dett, Tania Léon, Joseph Boulogne Chevalier de Saint-Georges, and Harry T. Burleigh.
