Community Music Center, celebrating its Centennial, presents a new work by Maestro Curtis, featuring Maestro Curtis Ph.D, the Curtis Family C-Notes and special guests, including Bishop James Adams, Pastor Gerald Gordon, Ken Little, Larry Douglas, Ricardo Scales, Tony Bolivar, Neil Stallings, Juan Escovedo and Dorothy Morrison. The concert is an extension of CMC’s Black Music Studies Program, offering a journey of Black roots music and triumph through song, including hymns and field songs used to distract enslaved Africans from rigorous work, songs and culture created in the safe haven of the church and music that the world enjoys today. 

Community Music Center celebrates its Centennial this year, celebrating 100 years of  making high-quality music accessible to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, regardless of financial means. For more information on the Black Music Studies Program or CMC, please visit: www.sfcmc.org.
