    Members of UAlbany’s Capital Trio team up with the Musicians of Ma'alwyck to present the Five Folksongs in Counterpoint of African-American composer Florence Price who set spirituals into classical style, including “Calvary,” “Oh My Darling Clementine,” “Momma's Little Baby,” “Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes” and “Swing Low Sweet Chariot.” Paired with that is the Piano Quintet of Dvo?ák, a champion of the music of his homeland Bohemia who encouraged Americans to find their voice in their musical roots of spirituals, folk songs and Native American melodies.
