About the event
Philadelphia’s Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra champions cultural diversity in classical music. This impressive collection of musicians plays a mix of musical styles that connect countries, cultures, and communities in exciting ways. Before Black Pearl takes the stage, enjoy an opening set by exceptional student musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music.
Between the performances, catch a lively conversation inspired by Suzanne Valadon: Model, Painter, Rebel. Jeri Lynne Johnson, Black Pearl’s artistic director and founder, joins Valerie Gay, our deputy director for audience engagement & chief experience officer. Learn how Johnson, a Black woman composer and conductor, defied the odds to break new ground in her field by founding her own orchestra.
Collection and exhibition access included.
