"History only records certain people's stories," is a powerful message shared through BSO OrchKids project "Queens Unseen: Royals Without Crowns," an original composition centered around the suffrage movement and the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. Forgotten Voices features students, artists, and scholars in the creative process of this project, and Black composers' voices are elevated with works from the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a contemporary of Mozart; Scott Joplin; Hannah Kendall; and other gifted living composers. This episode seeks to bridge the gap between untold histories and contemporary classical works.
