Throughout the month of February, CMI Streaming is celebrating Black History Month by featuring music by African-American performers, conductors, and composers. This week, we’ll hear several pieces performed by brothers Anthony and Demarre McGill. Originally from Chicago, the Mcgill brothers are some of the few African-Americans who hold positions in professional orchestras. Anthony is currently the principal clarinetist for the New York Philharmonic and Demarre the principal flutist for the Dallas Symphony. Anthony also performed along with Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo Ma, and Gabriela Montero at the inauguration of president Barack Obama. As recording artists, the McGill’s have performed a lot of music by living composers.
