Women Composers and the Black Renaissance

Samantha Ege belongs to a new generation of practitioners who are redefining classical music and illuminating the diversity of its past, present, and future.

This concert celebrates the Black Renaissance in which composers of African descent shaped a dynamic musical era through the first half of the twentieth century. Women played a significant role in defining the Black Renaissance sound and here Ege brings their legacies to the fore.

We are also delighted that Dr Ege, who is Lord Crewe Junior Research Fellow in Music at Lincoln College, University of Oxford, will host an event for local school children in the afternoon prior to her evening concert.
