Our latest podcast episode is a brief exploration into the life and music of William Grant Still, Dean of African-American Composers.
I took my first trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan in October of last year. One of the highlights of the trip was walking into the famed Michigan Theater at 10:00 a.m. sometime in the middle of the week and being invited by the manager on duty to take a look around. Not only did we look around, but this lovely mid-western fellow invited us to visit the theater’s Barton Organ. And sit at it. AND
