Masterworks III

The Broward Symphony Orchestra celebrates Black History Month with a performance of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Petite Suite de Concert. Son to Sierra Leone and English parents, Coleridge-Taylor spent most of his life in England as a prominent composer and conductor but toured the United States several times. On his first tour, Coleridge-Taylor met with President, Theodore Roosevelt, and conducted the United States Marine Band and Coleridge-Taylor Society Chorus. He conducted the Handel Society until his death in 1912 at the age of 37.

This concert will also include Aaron Copland’s Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo and Fanfare for the Common Man.
