Boston Conservatory chorus and orchestra welcome guest soloist Karen Slack (soprano) to present the New England premiere of Florence Price's Song of Hope. Written in 1929, Price had recently fled the Jim Crow South only to encounter the uncertainty of the Great Depression. A work of remarkable beauty and inspiring optimism, Song of Hope has, for far too long, been absent from concert stages. Conducted by Stephen Spinelli and William Cutter.

This performance has been selected as part of Boston Conservatory at Berklee's fall 2022 Center Stage collection. Learn more about Center Stage and view all Center Stage performances.
