Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
Erica Peel Piccolo

Harberg Piccolo Concerto (world premiere)
Price Symphony No. 3

Commissioned by the Federal Music Project at the height of the Great Depression, Florence Price composed her Third Symphony in the midst of the Chicago Renaissance, a powerful backdrop for writers and artists including Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, and Margaret Bonds. While her Second Symphony remains lost, Price's engaging Third Symphony reflects her growth as a composer, taking more risks, adding modern techniques, and expanding emotional elements as compared to her more traditional First Symphony. 

Completing this Digital Stage performance that celebrates the tremendous contributions of women, Erica Peel’s talent is on full display in Amanda Harberg’s Piccolo Concerto.

This program runs approximately 1 hour and will be performed without an intermission.

Please note: All Digital Stage events begin with a performance premiere, streaming in real time. Following the performance premiere, the concert will be available for ticket holders to watch on demand for one week.
