Adderley & Holliday perform music for piano duo by black composers.

Meisha Adderley and Stacey Holliday present a program of music for piano duo by black composers. Spanning a time frame of music written in 1935 by William Grant Still, to works by Dolores White and Hale Smith that date from the late 1960’s to the most recent work by Cedric Adderley written in 2010, this recording offers a survey not only of unique compositional voices across 75+ years, but also intriguing repertoire for this ensemble. Meisha Adderley received her D.M.A. from the University of South Carolina and also studied at the University of Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Indiana State University. She serves on the faculty of Capital University Conservatory of Music. Her colleague, Stacey Holliday, also studied at the University of South Carolina as well as Furman University. Formerly on the faculty at Furman University, Ms. Holliday now maintains a large piano studio and is active as a collaborative and solo artist.
