CITY ARTS : A Legend of Note

June 20, 1993

The Afro-American Chamber Music Society will close out the 1992-93 season with a free performance featuring the works of old and new composers, including a tribute to baseball legend Jackie Robinson.

The tribute to Robinson, written by composer Ed Bland, also marks the last concert in a June series celebrating Black Music Month. Bland is a local composer who has written classical compositions performed by the Detroit and Baltimore symphony orchestras.

"Ed Bland had written a piece for us, and we liked his work so much we asked him to write something else," said Janise White-McRae, co-founder of the chamber music society, a nonprofit organization that features the works of classical composers of African descent.

The concert will also feature White-McRae performing a concerto by Lucien Leon Guilliam Lambert, a 19th-Century composer.
