Agave Baroque collaborates on “American Originals: A New World, A New Canon”

Agave Baroque, a string chamber music group featuring Thornton alumni Kevin Cooper (DMA ‘06) and William Skeen (MM ‘01), collaborated with countertenor Reginald Mobley on a new album. American Originals: A New World, A New Canon celebrates the overlooked works of American composers of color in an effort to rectify the racial imbalance that has existed within classical music over the last four centuries.

Some of the composers included on the album are Florence Beatrice Price, Esteban Salas y Castro, Scott Joplin, Manuel de Zumaya, José Mauricio Nuñes Garcia and Justin Holland.
