WQXR presents a special evening honoring the African American experience in classical music.
Join the Imani Winds, pianists Roy Eaton and Donal Fox, and bass-baritone Joe Damon Chappel for a concert and conversation about the struggles and triumphs of African Americans in classical music -- where we are and where we're headed. Co-hosted by WQXR's Terrance McKnight and Q2 Music's Helga Davis.
