At this in-person event, masks and proof of vaccination are required. Please review our health and safety protocols here.
A major American artist of the mid-20th century, Hazel Scott was best known as a virtuosic jazz pianist—a celebrated presence on stage, on records, in movies, and later, on television. But she was also an exceptional classical musician, at a time when classical artists of color had few opportunities to perform.
In this recital, pianist Michelle Cann pays tribute to Scott and to other female, Black, classically trained pianists and composers of Scott’s time, including Florence Price and Margaret Bonds—all of whom incorporated Black culture into their classical works. A newly announced recipient of a 2022 Sphinx Medal of Excellence, Cann has been hailed as “a compelling, sparkling virtuoso” by the Boston Music Intelligencer. She will also be joined on stage by special guests in dialogue about Hazel Scott.
