Inspired by three different sculptures created in America’s swinging 1930s by artists associated with the Harlem Renaissance, William Grant Still’s Suite for violin and piano will receive its RCS premier. The music’s three movements will take you on a musical journey where you dance the Blues, sing a poignant lullaby and frolic to all manner of mischievous syncopations. If that doesn’t exhaust you, RCS student, Chris Sims’ Hastening Jig for string quartet, will receive its premier and Robert Schumann’s impassioned violin sonata no.1 in A minor will light the fuse to a fantastic concert. You won’t want to miss it!!
