Legacy- The Perry Family
In partnership with Lexington Historian, Yvonne Giles, LexPhil presents Legacy – The Perry Family, a free, outdoor chamber concert at the historic African Cemetery No. 2. Guest vocalists, Alicia Helm McCorvey and Whit Whitaker, will join a quartet of LexPhil musicians for this program featuring vocal and instrumental chamber works by composers Julia Perry and Florence Price, interwoven with narration about the life and legacy of the Perry family. African Cemetery No. 2 is the resting place of many notable members of Lexington’s African American community, including the grandparent’s of Julia Perry. This valued partnership between LexPhil, African Cemetery No. 2, and Yvonne Giles hopes to continue to share the meaningful stories of the Perry family and Lexington citizens.
