Luke Welch in Recital


The Peggy Corkum Music Room Wed, Apr 17 7:30 PM


In tonight's recital, Toronto pianist, writer and podcaster Luke Welch shares the story and the magnificently virtuosic music of African-British pianist, conductor, and composer, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. Renowned on both sides of the Atlantic at the turn of the 20th century, Coleridge-Taylor was admired by figures such as Edward Elgar, President Theodore Roosevelt, and W.E.B Du Bois.
