Philadelphia Gray’s Quick Step is arranged in the key of F major and includes solfege. This composition was written by American musician and prolific composer, Francis Johnson during the Antebellum period. This style of song is reminiscent of jug band and string band music, which has become the sounds of modern folk and bluegrass.
Johnson was the first African American composer to have his works published as sheet music. He was also the first African American to give public concerts and the first to participate in racially integrated concerts in the United States. Francis Johnson led the first American musical ensemble to present concerts abroad, and he introduced the promenade concert style to America. (Source)
Don't take our word for it
This is the most incredible thing! Jaime is 5, mostly non verbal…. she has never put more than 2 syllables of anything together unprompted. I cried when she sang Solfege on the way to bed one night. Thank you for the magical thing that your program has done for her!
