Black choral composers, arrangers, conductors, and ensembles have contributed impactful music – some of which is well-known, and others which deserve further exploration. This presentation will feature an overview of representative spirituals, anthems, gospel, and major works from 1900 to the present to encourage attendees to explore the variety of choral music written by black choral artists, and notable choral ensembles who have deeply impacted the choral industry. Composers presented will include trailblazers such as R. Nathaniel Dett and Moses Hogan, and currently active composers such as Dr. Diane L. White-Clayton and Isaac Cates.
