February 06, 2019

Here is Samantha Ege's Fantasie Negre, her realization of a world where black classical lives exist, matter and thrive.

Here, Samantha Ege enact's a public conversation via Sounding Out! so that the particular experiences shared in this article may inform wider work towards diversity and representation, especially in conference settings.

Happy Birthday Florence Price! (Born April 9 1887) Florence Price has been such a huge inspiration. In this interview, Samantha Ege talks about some of the ways Price has inspired her, how Ege interprets Price's music and how Ege's album F O U R  W O M E N (recorded with Wave Theory Records) is about telling Price's story.

In an interview with Stephen Raskauskas from WFMT, Samantha Ege discusses her research on Florence Price, the Black Chicago Renaissance and the women who were key actors in this cultural revolution.

In an interview with CSO Sounds & Stories, Samantha Ege shares her observations on the remarkable sagas of Florence Price and Margaret Bonds.

Florence Price and the Politics of Her Existence analyzes the components behind Price’s status as the first African American woman composer to achieve national and international success. The key components—opportunity and time—are explored alongside the acknowledgement that the role of each component in the life of any composer is very much shaped by the politics of their existence.

This lecture-recital centres on Price’s sonata and aims to shed light on the influences of African-American rural pasts and urban modernities, as embedded in the score, and to reflect their meanings in performance.
