OPERA@MORGAN presents a program of music by composer William Grant Still, a prominent member of the Harlem Renaissance. He is often referred to as the "Dean of Afro-American Composers" as he was the first American composer to have an opera produced and performed by the New York City Opera. Still was the first African-American to conduct a major American symphony orchestra, the first to have a symphony (which was, in fact, the first one he composed) performed by a leading orchestra, the first to have an opera performed by a major opera company, and the first to have an opera performed on national television. During his career, Still composed almost 200 works, including 9 operas, 5 symphonies, 4 ballets, plus art songs, chamber music, more than 30 choral works and works for solo instruments.
