Voices from the Past: Philippa Duke Schuyler and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor

Sunday, February 19, 2023

There are thousands of Black classical music composers throughout history. This concert highlights the music and lives of two of them, Philippa Duke Schuyler and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, with music performed by two CAAPA pianists. Narrated and curated by Nevilla Ottley, Schuyler was an American pianist, composer, author, journalist, and child prodigy. By contrast, Taylor was an English composer and conductor. Taylor was also referred to by white New York musicians as the “African Mahler” in the early 1900s. By the age of four, Schuyler was a noted pianist performing public recitals and radio broadcasts. Both of mixed-race birth, they achieved success in part because of their looks. The concert is produced by the Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts (CAAPA).
