The Black Reality Think Tank is honored to have as a conversationalist one of the world’s renowned viola and viola d’amore players, Clifton Harrison. Brother Harrison has performed as a chamber musician, recitalist, and in orchestras throughout Europe, the United States, Central America, and Asia. He is the viola player in the acclaimed Kreutzer Quartet with whom he has recorded extensively. As a member of the quartet, Clifton is currently an artist-in-residence at Oxford University. He has been artist-in-residence at Goldsmiths, Southampton, and Bath Spa University and continues a close association with the Royal Northern College of Music.
On top of his many accomplishments and musical honors, he is an American “homeboy” with deep roots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Durham, North Carolina. He is the grandson of one of the great Black preachers and educators of our time, Dr. Grady Davis, pastor emeritus of Union Baptist Church in Durham, North Carolina. He is also the son of the former Interim Dean of Liberal Arts & Sciences at Milwaukee Area Technical College, Dr. Deryl Davis Fulmer…
The discussion centers around his career as a classical music artist, a musicologist, and a Black man living in England. In the midst of COVID-19 and the murder of George Floyd, how can music minimize our fears and elevate our spirits? This and other questions will be explored.
