The African American Museum, Dallas will present An Evening with Scott Joplin Chamber Orchestra of Houston. The orchestra’s sixth Dallas appearance is in memory of revered musician, accompanist and educator Billie K. Roberts. The event benefits the Youth Programs of the AAM.

One of the nation's oldest contemporary majority African-American community orchestras, the Scott Joplin Chamber Orchestra was formed in 1983 under the umbrella of the nonprofit Community Music Center of Houston. Founder and Music Director Anne Lundy says its three purposes are to give African American instrumentalists opportunities to perform together; to explore and perform music written by Black composers; and to be an example to the Black community that orchestras can include people that look like them.

The African American Museum, Dallas will present An Evening with Scott Joplin Chamber Orchestra of Houston.

In addition, the South Dallas Children’s Choir will perform a selection of ballads. Also, Evelyn Foster Hamilton, a longtime dedicated community leader in music and retired educator, will be honored.
