Music

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

Read about Alex Newell here.

He’s the greatest composer you’ve probably never heard of.

Joseph Bologne – also known as Chevalier de Saint-Georges – was a violin virtuoso, a skilled fencer and a favorite of Marie Antoinette. Now, he’s the subject of the historical drama “Chevalier,” which stars Kelvin Harrison Jr. as the Black French maestro whose extraordinary music is frequently compared to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
