Talking Margaret Bonds, Michelle Cann and more with Joshua Thompson
We caught up with pianist and music sociologist Joshua Thompson to talk about Margaret Bonds, Michelle Cann's upcoming concert and more.
Michelle Cann performs May 15 at Indiana Landmark. Her program weaves works by Black female composers Margaret Bonds and Florence Price with pieces by Romantic composers Brahms and Chopin. A champion of the music of Florence Price, Cann made her orchestral debut at age fourteen and has since performed as a soloist with numerous orchestras, including The Philadelphia Orchestra and The Cleveland Orchestra. She will perform Price’s “Fantasie Nègre No. 1 in E minor” as well as “Troubled Water” by Bonds. Get tickets!
