The Ritz Chamber Players 

When: Fri., Feb. 16, 7:30 p.m. 2018
Price: $10-$20
Classical music has benefited from the rise of talented musicians of Asian descent for several decades now, but black musicians are still a rare sight in the concert hall. The Ritz Chamber Players is an all-black group founded by clarinetist Terrance Patterson, one of several African American chamber ensembles establishing beach heads all across the world. The group performs at the highest level, proving that only talent and perseverance matter in classical music, not the color of your skin. Tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Washington University's 560 Music Center (560 Trinity Avenue, University City; www.edison.wustl.edu). The Ritz Chamber Players presents a program that includes Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp and black composer Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson's Movement for String Trio. Among the players on stage will be Washington University faculty member Kyle Lombard (violin) and the grand dame of harpists, Ann Hobson Pilot, who played with the Boston Symphony Orchestra for 40 years. Tickets are $10 to $20.
