Composers of color aren't published? Is it possible that there isn't a large selection of material that is arranged for high school band and orchestra as opposed to choral. Maybe that's something the young clarinet player could do.

If the excluded race, gender was reversed, I'd bet you would think otherwise.

I don't give two ****s either way, its not blocking access, and that's when I have a problem. If you had said they were blocking white kids from band then absofrickinglotly I would have a problem, but its not. They are learning music, just this year it's from women and minorities BFD.

May I suggest people who have no opinion just simply paste a bobblehead emoticon for shlts and giggles? Oh, wait. There is no such thing.
Sorry I used words, next time I will just grunt so you can understand it.

This is intentional. The band directors at Spring Lake Park, outside of St. Paul, Minn., have pledged to include at least one piece by a female composer and one by a composer of color in each concert, for each of the school's bands.


Why This High School Band Is Only Buying Music From Composers Of Color This Year : NPR Ed : NPR
It seems they can still play pieces from white male composers...
