2022 Florence Price Celebration

February 5 & 6, 2022
University of the Incarnate Word & 
Texas Lutheran University

Florence Price (1887–1953) was a highly talented and prolific Black American composer. The most astounding fact cited about her is that she was the first Black woman to have her music performed by a major symphony orchestra. Price wrote over 300 works, some of which are finally becoming better known; however, she is still widely underperformed within the musical canon. The goal of the Florence Price Celebration is to introduce up & coming musicians to the life and music of this wonderful composer and inspire their creative endeavors. The celebration takes place on the weekend of February 5 & 6 on the campuses of the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas and Texas Lutheran University, in Seguin, Texas.

Events include:
