Event Description:
Guest artists Everett Suttle, tenor and Thomas Hobson Williams, piano present "Henry Thacker Burleigh, a Remembrance"

Henry Thacker "Harry" Burleigh (December 2, 1866 - September 12, 1949) was an American classical composer, arranger, and professional singer known for his baritone voice. The first black composer who was instrumental in developing characteristically American music, Burleigh made black music available to classically trained artists both by introducing them to spirituals and by arranging spirituals in a more classical form. Burleigh also introduced Antonin Dvorak to Black American music, which influenced som of Dvorak's most famous compositions and led him to say that Black music would be the basis of an American classical music.
