Althea Waites is an internationally acclaimed pianist and is currently on the keyboard faculty for the Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University/Long Beach.

This Saturday, March 23 at 8pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica, Jacaranda presents a concert called Flying Dream with Althea Waites performing music by African American composers including Florence Price. I spoke to Jacaranda’s Artistic & Executive Director Patrick Scott and to Waites about how the concert came together, including how Waites helped rescue Price’s composition from musical oblivion.
