American music is like the country: a melting pot of styles and influences! Ô-Celli turns to the composer Florence Price, first African-American woman to write symphonies performed by great symphony orchestras or George Gershwin who, coming from a Jewish family from Russia, has been able to integrate black American music.
In this program that marks 10 years of Ô-Celli, there is also a place for Belgium and the music of Harold Noben, an accomplice of the first hour of this octet that will take you into a program full of surprises. Let’s Rock!
