Concert pianist Beatrice Nicholas talks and performs works by three Chicago
Renaissance composers: Florence Price; Margaret Bonds and Betty Jackson King.
The Chicago Renaissance was a creative movement that blossomed out of
Chicago’s black belt during the 1930s and 1940s.
‘Her flurries of arpeggios chime with precision and clarity
as she rolls up and down the keyboard with an almost supernatural ease.’
Andrew Mcgonigle, Arts Mag.
