2022 Florence Price Celebration

February 5 & 6

Florence Price, a highly prolific and influential composer, was the first Black woman to have her music performed by a major symphony orchestra. Her legacy lives on in her compositions, yet she is still widely underperformed within the musical canon. The Florence Price Festival will be held on the weekend of February 5 and 6 on the campuses of Texas Lutheran University and the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW).
