A. Kori Hill is a music historian and PhD candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her dissertation, “A Creation of Tradition: New Negro Modernism in the Concertos of Florence B. Price” considers Price’s three concertos as examples of modernist expression, addressing the need for critical consideration of classical music’s function in Black/New Negro modernism and further contextualization of Price’s aesthetic in American music history. Kori has presented her Price research at the Society for American Music and related topics on Black classical performers and composers at the FT&M17 conference, UNC-KCL Graduate Student conference, and the South Central Graduate Music Consortium. Her media review, “Florence Price: Violin Concertos,” was published in the Journal of the Society for American Music (JSAM) and her review of Naomi André’s “Black Opera: History, Power, Engagement,” is forthcoming in JSAM. Kori is a contributor for I Care if You Listen and worked as Director of Social Media for The Harry T. Burleigh Society from 2018 to Fall 2020. She holds a M.A. in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a M.M. in music history and violin performance from West Virginia University, and a B.M. in violin performance from Miami University (of Ohio!).
