The annual Gateways Music Festival presents a brand new 13-week series of programs highlighting music from its festivals and other musicians of African descent.
Gateways Radio airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on WXXI Classical.
The Gateways Music Festival Orchestra is a 125+ member ensemble of musicians of African descent under the leadership of conductor Anthony Parnther. The Orchestra made its stunning Carnegie Hall debut on April 24, 2022 as the first all-Black orchestra to be presented by the famed venue.
Gateways Radio features exceptional compositions and exquisite performances, celebrating the Gateways Music Festival’s mission of connecting and supporting classical musicians of African descent and serving as a source of inspiration, enlightenment, and engagement for communities—especially communities underrepresented in classical music. Garrett McQueen hosts.
