William Grant Still

The Afro-American Symphony

William Grant Still wanted to put the sound of the blues into a symphony. His Afro-American Symphony is centered on a bluesy theme. Still took that theme and did something entirely different with it in each of the Symphony’s four movements.

The Music of Freedom
The songs that helped the slaves escape to the north, as well as others that celebrate freedom.
