The BRAVO Community Orchestra brings BRAVO students together with community members of all ages. Our Winter Concert program will feature selections by African-American composers Florence Price and Scott Joplin. Scott Joplin is known as the “King of Ragtime”, and Florence Price is the first African-American woman to have her compositions performed by a major orchestra.
