African-American Composers Series

The African-American Composer Exhibition and Music Education Series began at The William Grant Still Arts Center in 2009.  This exhibition series selects and celebrates the life and work of an African-American Composer annually. Panels, concerts, exhibits, workshops, and other programs bring the exhibit to life.

The exhibition series is held in conjunction with The William Grant Still Arts Center’s African-American Heritage Education Program. Our Center focuses on teaching art skills, cultural history, and music through practice and playing experience via the works of groundbreaking musical innovators in the tradition of our namesake, Dr. William Grant Still, to beginning and intermediate students of all ages.
