The Harlem Chamber Players will feature two world premieres by the noted African American composer Adolphus Hailstork. Baritone Kenneth Overton, violinists Ashley Horne and Curtis Stewart, violist Amadi Azikiwe, and cellist Wayne Smith will perform works, including Hailstork's "Nobody Know" (with text by Herbert Martin), which commemorates the 400th anniversary of the importation of the first black slaves to America, and his Piano Quintet entitled "Detroit." The concert will conclude with Dvořák's String Quartet in F Major "American."
