Presented the day after Martin Luther King Day and heralding the arrival of Black History Month in February, Piano Spheres presents local luminary Althea Waites performing recently discovered music by Margaret Bonds, an African-American composer whose voice was silenced and unknown for many years, but is now coming into the mainstream through performances and research into her life and music.  The program also includes works by other Black composers such as Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and Tania Leon, as well as pianist/composers Frederic Rzewski, who used folk music and inspiration from social justice as a focal point of his work, and local jazz pianist and composer Jeremy Siskind.

This concert celebrates Piano Spheres’ debut at UCLA’s beautiful new Nimoy Theater, centrally located on Westwood Blvd. near the Hammer Museum  in Westwood.  Parking is plentiful in adjoining lot.

Margaret Bonds: Flamenco*, Tangamerican, Fugal Dance*
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: Two Waltzes from Three-Fours, Op.71
Tania Leon: Momentum
