On November 11th, at 7:30 pm, the Colour of Music Festival, Inc. will present at the UC Davis Mondavi Center. The organization presents a diverse classical repertoire of baroque, classical and 20th-century music. At the highest musical standards, the festival has performed for diverse national audiences from Atlanta to Houston. Soon, they  on Thursday, November 11th at 7:30 pm.

Despite his impressive influence on classical music, few enthusiasts are aware of the tremendous contributions of Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges. The African-French composer’s opera and classical masterpieces equaled or far exceeded those of his 18th-century contemporaries. Although his compositions are highly regarded overseas, they have gathered little notice in the United States. Today, there are thousands of celebrated and prodigiously talented classical principals, composers and performers of African descent throughout the world. However, their opportunities to grace concert stages of major American orchestras are rare to non-existent. The Colour of Music Festival’s mission is reversing this trend.

For 8 years now, the Colour of Music Festival has highlighted the impact and historical significance of Black classical composers and performers on American and world culture. The festival began with performances at various venues throughout historic Charleston, South Carolina. Since then, it has grown to debut in cities across the country with artists from across the globe.

Assembling acclaimed Black chamber ensemble players and artists to form the Colour of Music Orchestra, the Festival showcases some of the top Black classical musicians in the United States, trained at some of the most prestigious music schools, conservatories and universities in the world.
