Still and Negrón with Dudamel

Power to the People! Festival

Thu / June 2, 2022 - 8:00PM

Dudamel leads William Grant Still’s “Afro-American” Symphony, and J’Nai Bridges lends her voice to poetry by Pablo Neruda.

About this Performance

In this special Power to the People! concert, Dudamel conducts the most recognized symphony—proudly based on the blues—by the Dean of African American Composers, William Grant Still, one of the leading lights of the Harlem Renaissance. The program also boasts a world premiere from the multi-talented Puerto Rico-born composer Angélica Negrón, who has already composed for a vast range of ensembles and projects, including scores for film, documentary, ballet, and theater, as well as many orchestral works and chamber music.

The LA Phil is the proud host of the League of American Orchestras 77th National Conference, presented in partnership with the Association of California Symphony Orchestras. We are delighted to welcome Conference delegates from across the country to this concert on June 2.

Concerts in the Thursday 2 subscription series are generously supported by the Otis Booth Foundation.
