Two recently published articles in Percussive Notes magazine mean it’s time to rebroadcast two recent conversations. Joe W. Moore III and Teddy Hall, Jr. talk about African-American Orchestral Percussionists: the beginnings of the research (02:30), their own orchestral history (14:20), the influence of conservatories vs. other institutions of higher learning (23:10), orchestral pipelines and numbers (36:50), and the interests of orchestras in diversity, along with final thoughts (46:30).
We then revisit part of Teddy Hall, Jr.’s discussion about the life of Richard Johnson, the first African-American Percussion Instructor at Indiana University from the early 1960s-1980s (01:01:00).
Finishing with a Rave on the graphic novel Persepolis (01:21:40).
