The Claxton Powell Music Festival was created as a way to honor Jeanetta Hopkins' ( founder of Bull City Music School) family and their lineage of musicians. The festival celebrates the diversity in music education and performance through music of underrepresented composers. This is an opportunity for music lovers, educators and performers to engage in meaningful dialogue in an atmosphere of unity.
Where creativity and culture are celebrated
Imagine a festival where classical and contemporary musicians and enthusiasts converge to celebrate and perform works of under represented composers, showcase new performers and give back to the arts community all in one place.
The Claxton Powell Music Festival will bring together new talent mixed with fresh voices. Join us online for the inaugural event, April 30- May 2.
