Denver Area Music Teachers Association (DAMTA) cannot WAIT to celebrate with Dr. Leah Claiborne for our 4th Annual Musicale Celebrating Black History Month. We are honored that Dr. Claiborne will attend our recital as students perform works from her newly published series, Piano Music of Black Composers. We are thrilled to collaborate with Lamont School of Music Piano Preparatory Program to develop this special event. The recital will take place in Hamilton Hall at Denver University’s Newman Center on a Steinway & Sons grand piano. DAMTA is the proud recipient of the Community Engagement Grant by Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), the Local Association Grant by Colorado State Music Teachers Association (CSMTA) and event sponsorship by Friends of Chamber Music. We are humbled that in our recital’s fourth year, we have grown our participation from 8 students of 4 teachers in 2021, to 28 students of 16 teachers in 2024! This has been a team effort and we do not take for granted our community that has encouraged and supported our hard work. Thank you to our DAMTA Board of Directors and Lamont School of Music Piano Preparatory Program for a wonderful partnership. Congratulations Dr. Claiborne on a monumental project and thank you for the inspiration and opportunity for our students, teachers and community to learn and grow from your beautiful book series.
