Arts and Cultural News Headlines


There's a lot that has to happen before the musicians of an orchestra can take to the practice stage and the programs are printed, and much of that preparatory work is done by the orchestra's librarian. The Philadelphia Orchestra recently announced the appointment of Nicole Jordan as its new Principal Librarian, beginning in the Fall. Jordan, who grew up in Philadephia and was the orchestra's Library Fellow from 2008-2011 while earning her Masters in Music in music history from Temple University, will also be the first African-American woman to hold a full-time position with the orchestra.

On Nov. 20, 1934, a brand new symphony brought a Carnegie Hall audience to its feet. The concert featured the Philadelphia Orchestra, led by its star conductor Leopold Stokowski. The music was the Negro Folk Symphony, by the 35-year-old African American composer William Dawson.

In the liner notes to John Coltrane's 1964 album Live At Birdland, Amiri Baraka (then writing as Le Roi Jones) contemplated the gift the saxophonist and his band offered with this music inspired by the horrific deaths of four Black girls in a Birmingham church bombing inspired by white supremacist hatred. "Listen," Baraka wrote. "What we're given is a slow delicate introspective sadness, almost hopelessness, except for Elvin [Jones], rising in the background like something out of nature... a fattening thunder, storm clouds or jungle war clouds.
