Oscar Peterson, regarded as one the greatest jazz pianists of all time, is among Canada’s most honoured musicians. Peterson’s Canadiana Suite, originally written as a ballet, will be performed with jazz trio and orchestra. Florence Price was the first African-American woman to have a work performed by a major US orchestra. Her third symphony premiered in 1938 right across the river from us at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
