The program includes Price's "5 Folksongs in Counterpoint" forstring quartet, Piano Sonata, and selected songs and choral works. Florence Price (1887-1953) was the first African-American female composer to have a composition performed by a major symphony orchestra when her Symphony in E Minor was performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1933. Many of Price's compositions have been rediscovered and revived in recent years.

American soprano Marlissa Hudson has been described as a "superb lyric coloratura." As a concert soloist, she has collaborated with such esteemed organizations as the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Pops Orchestra, National Philharmonic Orchestra, Choralis, St. Louis Civic Orchestra, and the Prince George's Philharmonic.
