New FREE Online Directory of Living Black Classical Composers Launched
The Rachel Barton Pine Foundation has this week announced the launch of a new free online directory of living black classical music composers
The Rachel Barton Pine Foundation, in Chicago, has this week announced the launch of a new free online directory of living black classical music composers.
“Composers of African descent have created masterful classical music for centuries, yet they continue to be underrepresented in concert programming and in classical music education ..." Foundation President and international violinist Rachel Barton Pine has said.
"This absence silences a rich vein of works from global consciousness and obscures the true face of classical music,” she has said.
The new ever-expanding directory, called MBC, includes information about more than 170 living Black composers from North and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Asia - including their name, geographic region, gender, birth year, contact information and website link.
MBC can be viewed at: www.musicbyblackcomposers.org/resources/living-composers-directory
