In a year of amplified calls for racial justice, symphonies, college music departments, and classical music radio stations have been working to show that classical music is for and by all kinds of people. What will it take to break the grip of long-deceased white European men on the public’s perception of classical music?
On Friday, December 4, 4 – 5 p.m., join WTJU for “Making Classical Music Inclusive,” a conversation with Virginia composers and performers.
Free event, but registration is required. REGISTER HERE.
