Dr. Er-Gene Kahng will be speaking about her journey of preserving a piece of the Ozarks. A project in which she helped to revive a previously unknown work composed by the Ozark composer Florence Price, who was the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer. Dr. Kahng will address some of the many interpretive decisions involved in this project as well as comment on her experience releasing the world premiere recording of Florence Price's violin concerto no. 1 and no. 2, through Albany Records in February 2018.
Er-Gene Kahng is professor of violin at the University of Arkansas. She holds degrees from UCLA, Yale, and Northwestern. She is also a former Visiting Fellow of University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England.
Please join us in the Walker Community Room to learn more about a composer who shares our love of the Ozarks.
