Episode Description:

Composer Francine Trester was inspired to write a short opera about Florence Price, the African-American composer who died in 1953. Price's music is beautiful, and although she was the first African-American to have a major symphony play her work, she suffered racial and gender discrimination, including homelessness. Julie Leven, founder of an organization that plays classical music in homeless shelters, commissioned the opera. Both women talk about Price and her legacy.
