Dr. Samantha Ege is a musicologist-pianist and a leading interpreter of the African-American composer Florence B. Price. She is currently the Lord Crewe Junior Research Fellow in Music at Lincoln College. There, she also teaches courses in music and specializes in the influence of African American and female composers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Her research focuses on uncovering the history of African American women in classical music, whose works have been historically repressed. She has written multiple publications on Florence Price as well as released two albums featuring her compositions. Dr. Ege’s work to amplify Florence Price through her publications and performances is significant because it provides representation of a Black female composer in classical music, which restores Price’s place in history as well as provides inspiration to other musicians of color.
