Samuel Coleridge-Taylor died on 1 September 1912. He was just 37 years old.
2012 is therefore the centenary of the legacy of this important musician, a man who made his mark not only in music, but also as an example in his time of decency and fairness in the way in which he saw and responded to the issues of the day.
There will be many, in Coleridge-Taylor’s home town of Croydon, in the world of ‘classical’ music, and in the wider community of the United Kingdom, the United States and numerous other places, who will wish to celebrate the legacy of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, as a man and as a musician, at this time.
The interest in Coleridge-Taylor’s life and work is growing, as realisation of his contribution to musical and civic affairs grows.
We will seek to reflect this growing interest and understanding and we hope you will send us News to report and share here.
