The Lost Chord: February 16 - Educational Bonds

Chicago-born Margaret Bonds was one of the first black composers and performers of classical music to gain recognition in the U.S.  Yet, for all her accomplishments – her collaborations with Langston Hughes and the composition of two ballets and several theater works – the Bonds discography remains woefully thin. Tune in to hear a handful of her works alongside those of her notable teachers, Florence Price and William Levi Dawson, both of whom were major figures in the development of African-American art music.  Invest in Bonds, this Sunday at 10 pm.
