CBMR is proud to be one of the supporting organizations of the exhibit, Treemonisha: Celebrating African Americans in Classical Music. This traveling exhibit is the thesis project developed by Rosaleen Rhee, a masters degree candidate in Museum Studies at the University of Washington in Seattle. The five large panels focus on the contributions of past and living classical musicians of African-American heritage, including Francis Johnson, Blind Tom, Scott Joplin, Florence Price, Margaret Bonds, William Grant Still, George Walker, the Fisk Jubilee Singers, Harry Burleigh, Marian Anderson, Sylvia Olden Lee, and Robert McFerrin, plus local classical African-American musicians in the Seattle area.
