Hazel Scott 101st Birthday Celebration: Program 2

May 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Michelle Cann, piano

Wednesday, May 25, 8pm

Sixth & I


A major American artist of the mid-20th century, Hazel Scott was best-known as a virtuosic jazz pianist—a celebrated presence on stage, on records, in movies, and later, on television. But she was also an exceptional classical musician, at a time when classical artists of color had few opportunities to perform. In this recital, the second concert in our 2021/22 Hazel Scott “centenary-plus-one” tribute, pianist Michelle Cann, “a compelling, sparkling virtuoso” (Boston Music Intelligencer), pays tribute to Scott and to other female, African American, classically trained pianists and composers of Scott’s time, including Florence Price and Margaret Bonds—all of whom incorporated Black culture into their classical works. Cann will also be joined on stage by special guests in dialogue about Hazel Scott.
