UCelli (The Columbus Cello Quartet) will perform four new works by composer, recording artist, drummer, activist and educator Dr. Mark Lomax, II. Admission is free.
Commissioned by UCelli, “Four Women” is the seventh composition of an ambitious 12-album cycle about Black America that Lomax will release in 2019. This work honors the contributions that women of Afrikan descent have made to the cause of freedom and human rights from the 14th century to the present.
