About the event
Inspired by the friendship between composers Florence Price and Margaret Bonds, whose mutual support helped them break down barriers and have their music heard in the classical music world of the early 20th century, Rock My Soul celebrates both historical and present-day collaborations between Black women artists.
Curated by and featuring soprano Julia Bullock, the festival will kick off with a one-night-only performance by Chaka Khan on Sunday, October 30; and will include a mixed-media evening, titled History's Persistent Voice, and feature works by composers including Jessie Montgomery, Rhiannon Giddens, Elizabeth A. Baker and more.
