Ric'key Pageot at Allegro Studios in Burbank, Ca.

Steinway artist Ric'key Pagoet partnered with Crewest Studio to create Classic Black as a new educational platform designed to celebrate black excellence in classical music from yesterday and today.

Classic Black comprises live performances and educational talks. Ric'key uses the power of his world-class musical talent and his compelling human story to celebrate and honor great black composers in classical music such as Joseph Boulogne (aka Chevalier de St. Georges), George Bridgetower, Thomas "Blind Tom" Wiggins, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Florence B Price, William Grant Still and George Walker.

Classic Black is powered by Arterial, a 501c3 non-profit arts organization. If you would like to support this important music education program by making a tax-deductible donation
