2024 Founder’s Concert

2024 Founder’s Concert

Alison Buchanan, Soprano, Robert Sims, Baritone, and Daniel Lockert, Pianist

In honor of Dr. W. Hazaiah Williams, founder of Four Seasons Arts in a program of African-American Spirituals and songs by African-American composers.

Dr. Williams was one of the first African-American presenters of a major classical music concert series in the United States and it is to him that we offer this special tribute. His love of classical music began as a child when he attended concerts by legendary artists such as tenor Roland Hayes and contralto Marian Anderson, In 1958, at a time when the classical music world, and much of the rest of society, was racially segregated, he began presenting artists of all races and organizing racially diverse audiences.
