Flute professor Alexa Still and pianist Evan Hines team up for a virtual performance of three emotionally charged works by composer and flutist Valerie Coleman.

In the searing tone poem Wish, Coleman addresses the inconceivable injustices perpetrated against enslaved Africans en route to the New World, as described in Fred D’Aguiar’s poem of the same name. In Fanmi Imèn (Haitian Creole for "Human Family”), Coleman draws upon the more optimistic view of humanity espoused in Maya Angelou’s poem “Human Family.” Also featured is the mournfully beautiful Requiem Milonga, described by the composer as “a song of longing and remembrance for those who have loved and lost.”

The performance of these works sets the stage for a post-concert discussion between Still and Hines about our current pivotal moment in American race relations.
