Judith Anne Still

The daughter of William Grant Still, Judith Anne Still, now dedicates herself to getting her father's music recorded and played by orchestras. She visited WGUC in May 2000. Here are excerpts from her conversation with Naomi Lewin.

 


A victrola brings opera music into the home, inspiring William Grant Still from a young age


Still's start in music


Still prayed that music would help him bring races together


Race relations through music were his proudest moments


His creative process


Still was constantly revising his music


Still couldn't get his music recorded while he was alive


Judith Ann would like her father to be remembered for bringing love to society through music.
