The final concert of our Who Are We, D.C.? season, exploring composers as diverse as our city, features three female composers from the 1800s to today. The program opens with Concert Overture No. 2 by Florence Price, the first African American woman to have a composition played by a major orchestra. This will be followed by Louise Farrenc’s Symphony No. 3 and we close the season with Howard University alum, Mary D. Watkins’ Five Movements in Color.
