Composer, conductor, and musician Damien Sneed spoke with Classic 107.3’s Julie Schuster about this weekend’s concert event at The Sheldon, “Our Song, Our Story”, featuring baritone Justin Austin and soprano Jacqueline Echols. The concert was inspired in part by Damien’s godmother, Jessye Norman, and celebrates her legacy as well as that of singer Marian Anderson. Damien tells listeners about this meaningful program, which includes his own music as well as selections by Margaret Bonds, Harry T. Burleigh, Richard Smallwood, and others; he also shares his enthusiasm for the people and organizations of St. Louis!
