Former Northern Mississippi Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Er-Gene Kahng (shown above) returns to perform the recently discovered Violin Concerto No. 2 of Arkansas composer Florence Beatrice Price. Price is noted as the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra. The NMSO also welcomes the collaboration of the choruses from Itawamba and Northeast Mississippi Community Colleges, and the NMSO Children’s Chorus, all of whom have contributed so richly and significantly to the success of the NMSO and our regional community.

Florence Price Recording Project

Dr. Walwyn looks forward to completing the first of four volumes of music for solo piano and some chamber work of Florence Price. She anticipates the completion of the first volume by July 2021. Updates will be announced here at our Florence Price News.
Most of the works to be recorded will be premiere recordings. It is a very exciting project, and we hope that you will check back to see how things are coming especially as we get closer to Florence’s birthday, April 9.

We are accepting donations towards the recording project.
