Sounds Unknown: The Black Violin (Westside)

  • Edye Second Space at the Broad Stage 1310 11th Street Santa Monica, CA, 90401 United States (map)

From music by the mythic figure of Chevalier de St. Georges to the premiere of Derrick Spiva’s “As I Heard When I Was Young,” this concert tells the stories of just a few black composers’ and performers’ contributions to classical music. It shows how we -- and even Beethoven -- have erased them from history.
