Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Will Marion Cook was one of the earliest African-American composers to achieve significant success in musical theater. However, even though his talents were admired at the turn of the twentieth century, he and his work have since been largely forgotten. Having studied with Joseph Joachim in Berlin and Antonin Dvorak in New York City, Cook was respected for his pioneering achievements in popular songwriting, Black musical comedies and syncopated orchestral music. Renowned tenor William Brown's repertoire encompassed practically all musical genres. He was a particularly avid performer of American music from all ages and had appeared with major orchestras and ensembles all over the world.
