Description

My heart be brave is the first of our New American Composers concerts, featuring composer Marques L.A. Garrett. Marques focuses on traditional music of the African diaspora, as well as contemporary choral music by Black composers.

For his Seattle Pro Musica commissioned work, Marques has chosen a text by the Black American poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, with its evocative text asking to ”teach this tongue the singer’s soulful art.”
