Brooklyn Friends School

This week's edition of THE LIFE takes us inside an Upper School Orchestra Ensemble Class as students prepare for their performance at the Feb. 22 Black History Month Celebration. Hear some beautiful music and learn about the connection between music and and the Underground Railroad and the work of Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799). Orchestra teacher Elvira Sullivan explained that while Le Chevalier was known as the black Mozart, one could say it's Mozart who should be known as the white Le Chevalier because Mozart went to Le Chevalier to learn from his immense talent and expertise.
