Soothe Yourself with These Classical Violin Compositions at Arend Arts Center
The APO performs the recently re-discovered Violin Concerto No. 2 of Arkansas composer Florence Beatrice Price.
Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Florence B. Price (1887-1953) studied at the New England Conservatory, the Chicago Musical College and the American Conservatory. Price composed throughout her life, producing as many as 300 compositions.
Price's groundbreaking Symphony in E Minor was the first prize-winner of the 1932 Rodman Wanamaker Music Contest and was premiered in 1933 by Frederick Stock and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. It is the first work by a black woman to be performed by a major symphony orchestra in the United States.
Now, join us at the Arend Arts Center as violinist Er-Gene Kahng performs these stunning pieces.
Even though Ranch at Pinnacle Point Apartments in Rogers, Arkansas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
