I accidentally discovered Roland Hayes' Brookline home this morning, marked by this lovely plaque, which brought me back to 2015's Breath & Imagination. For those who never saw that production, Daniel Beaty wrote a powerful play about the first world-renowned African-American classical vocalist. co-artistic director David Dower directed the piece. WBUR called it "superb" and @bostonglobe said it gave "voice to a remarkable life." #danielbeaty #emersoncollege #rolandhayes #brookline #boston

This bulging scrapbook was quite a beast to catalog but worth it! An amazing assortment of autographs collected by NYPL music librarian, singer and critic Philip Lieson Miller. .
.
A fascinating and important scrapbook of autograph material compiled by Philip Lieson Miller (1906-1996), the renowned New York Library Chief of the Music Division in the 1960's and a vocalist, commentator, concert arranger, author, and important presence on the New York cultural scene for many years. His personal scrapbook contains autograph material from musicians, composers, conductors, opera singers, and others active in the music world, as well as earlier material from acquaintances related to his father’s Roxbury Hotel in the Catskills. The over 400 signed items, some mounted and some loosely laid in, include postcards, autograph and typed letters, cards, programs, clipped signatures and canceled checks. Of particular interest are the many library request slips signed by famous visitors to the library, showing which scores and books they requested from the stacks. A remarkable assemblage of signed items illustrating the literary world and the music world, and the life of a notable librarian and musician. Highlights include autographs from #KurtWeill, #MariaJeritza, #LucreziaBori, #FeodorChaliapin, #WalterDamrosch, #RolandHayes, Alberto #Ginastera, Moritz #Moszkowski, #ErichLeinsdorf, Efrem #Zimbalist and and and and...

"Colour of Music Festival celebrates contributions of blacks to classical music

By Adam Parker 🎶
Oct. 7, 2017 🎶 🎶
"Black composers, whether European or American, are hardly acknowledged, though there are many of them, including Joseph Boulogne (the Chevalier de Saint-George), George Bridgewater, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Harry Lawrence Freeman, Maurice Arnold Strothotte, Will Marion Cook, Scott Joplin, Robert Nathaniel Dett, William Grant Still, Florence B. Price & George Walker. 🎶
🎶
"A lack of diversity is not limited to programming. It extends to staffing. Orchestras & opera houses tend to be overwhelmingly white, though a significant number of blacks are graduating from conservatories & entering the field, especially in recent years. 🎶
🎶
"It’s difficult, for anyone, to master an instrument of classical music, to afford one, to pay for private lessons, to devote hours to practice. For many African Americans, it can be even harder due to socio-economic disadvantages and cultural biases. 🎶
🎶
"Organized by Lee Pringle, the Colour of Music Festival assembles an orchestra for two “Masterworks” concerts at the Gaillard Center on Saturday, Oct. 21 & Sunday, Oct. 22. It also includes organ, piano and vocal recitals, three chamber music concerts, a symposium celebrating soprano Leontyne Price and a book event at which Christopher A. Brooks and Robert Sims present their bestselling biography, “Roland Hayes: The Legacy of an American Tenor.” 🎶

Negroes,
Sweet and docile,
Meek, humble and kind:
Beware the day
They change their mind!
Wind
In the cotton fields,
Gentle Breeze:
Beware the hour
It uproots trees!

#RolandHayes, the brilliant tenor who became the first #African-American man to earn international fame as a concert #vocalist, photographed by Addison Scurlock in #1940. Born to former slaves in Curryville, #Georgia in #1887, he attended Fisk and briefly toure

Very pleased to have placed this at the BSO Archives today! Moved to tears by this important and very moving letter from the African-American lyric tenor and composer ROLAND HAYES to the great BSO conductor PIERRE MONTEUX, congratulating him on his 80th birthday in 1955 and thanking him for his support when, in 1923, Monteux conducted at Hayes' debut recital at Symphony Hall -- the first African-American soloist to appear with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Hayes writes: "...At the risk of painful controversy, you rose superior to prevailing prejudice when you insisted that I, a worthy artist, merited an appearance with the first symphony orchestra of our nation -- the difference of race to be no barrier... On that occasion every stroke of your inspired baton resounded a benefit to me and all mankind that encircled the whole world -- the overtones of which have echoed sonorously from that time until this very day -- thiry two years after." ----------
One of the first successful African-American classical musicians in the United States, Roland Hayes studied at Fisk University and began his concert career in 1916, paying $200 of his own money to rent Jordan Hall for his first recital, as he was unable to find a sponsor. After a very successful tour of Europe in 1921, he returned to the U.S. and became the first African-American soloist to perform with the Boston Symphony, on November 16, 1923. Monteux invited Hayes to sing after he was recommended by Judge Frederick P. Cabot, member of the BSO's board of trustees. "Said Monteux, 'I was simply enchanted with Mr. Hayes' voice, his erudition in matters pertaining to music and his charming manners. I was so enchanted by that lovely recital that I said, 'He must sing with the orchestra in Symphony Hall. He is an American, and I want him.'" (John Canarina: Pierre Monteux, Maitre, p. 71). #rolandhayes #bso #bostonsymphony #monteux #conductor #orchestra #autograph #africanamericanhistory

#Repost @mikewillcutyou because this is a story worth sharing. ・・・
I posted him last year, but it's just too good. Tenor, Roland Hayes is one of the most inspiring black artists from the early days of recording. Rejected by concert managers because of the color of his skin, he rented Boston's Symphony Hall with $400 of his own money in 1917! (That's over $8,100 today) He promoted his own concert, printed tickets, compiled a mailing list and his Fall show of that year (1917) was an unexpected success! He convinced Columbia records to let him record his "serious" songs (Spirituals, Art, & Classical arias) but once again, had to pay out of his own pocket for studio time AND had to sell his OWN records! Supporters across the country began to assist in the selling of these recordings, (courageous supporters), since no record store would stock them. These were the first classical recordings by a black artist in the U.S. He finally broke through as an international performer in the 1920s. We remember him today. Speak of brave men. #blackhistorymonth #rolandhayes

Roland Hayes, the brilliant tenor who became the first African-American man to earn international fame as a concert vocalist, photographed by Addison Scurlock in 1940. Born to former slaves in Curryville, Georgia in 1887, he attended Fisk University and briefly toured with the Fisk Jubilee Singers. Early in his career, he was turned down by talent managers because he was Black so, he invested in himself: He raised money and arranged and financed his own concert performances,which included Negro spirituals, lieder and arias by Schubert, Tchaikovsky, and Mozart. In 1942, Mr. Hayes’s wife, Helen and daughter, Afrika, sat in a whites-only area of a shoe store and were thrown out of the store. When Mr. Hayes defended his family, he was beaten and he and his wife were arrested - and the governor of Georgia was absolutely fine with it. The incident inspired Langston Hughes to compose the poem, Roland Hayes Beaten. Mr. Hayes would later teach at Boston University and would go on to celebrate more than 50 years on the concert stage before his death in 1977. #RolandHayes
