The Founder and Artistic Director of The Colour of Music Black Classical Musicians Festival is my guest this week. Lee strives to inform music lovers and classical music enthusiasts to be aware of the thousands of celebrated and prodigiously talented classical principals, composers and performers of African descent throughout the world. Yet, their opportunities to grace concert stages of major orchestras are rare to non-existent.
Now in its fifth year, the five-day Colour of Music Festival showcases some of the top black classical musicians in the world, trained at some of the most prestigious music schools, conservatories and universities worldwide.
