ONEcomposer is a commitment to the celebration of musicians whose contributions have been historically erased. By providing a platform for the study, performance, and discussion of a single, underrepresented composer’s life and legacy for the duration of an entire academic year, ONEcomposer promotes a more complete understanding of musical histories. For the duration of the 2020-2021 academic year, ONEcomposer will spotlight the life and works of Florence Price. Through the support of the Central New York Humanities Corridor and Engaged Cornell, we will offer lecture-recitals, live-streamed performances, and a speaker series with leading Black artists, as we reexamine the excellence of the woman who first inspired ONEcomposer: Florence B. Price
The Cornell University Chorus, directed by Sarah Bowe, partners with ONEcomposer for a panel discussion with Dara Taylor about the need for diversity in the world of musical composition, and the action steps required to make the study of composition more welcoming to women and people of color.
