Conductor André Raphel makes his subscription series debut in a program featuring jazz pianist and composer Uri Caine's The Passion of Octavius Catto, an oratorio about the Reconstruction-era civil rights leader who was murdered in Philadelphia in 1871. Caine's jazz trio and the BSO are joined by multifaceted vocalist Barbara Walker and the newly formed BSO Gospel Chorus for this moving piece. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, a British composer of African descent, wrote his entertaining, colorful four-movement Petite Suite de Concert in 1910. In 1931, William Grant Still's Symphony No. 1, Afro-American, was the first symphony by an African-American to be performed by a significant American orchestra, the Rochester Philharmonic. Arthur Fiedler led performances with the Boston Pops in 1937.
