Herb Smith: Classical Music Is "For the People"

by ABI CLARK

ROCHESTER NY--Local trumpet legend Herb Smith will offer a class called "Introduction to Classical Music and the Barriers of Black Musicians" next Tuesday at the Rochester Brainery.


The idea, Smith says, is to show people how to unlock the language of classical music, which can sometimes seem unapproachable today, while also exploring the barriers Black and brown musicians face in the classical music world.


Arts reporter Abi Clark recently spoke with Smith to find out more.
