Designed to be used before and after attending a centennial performance of the music of African American composer William Grant Still, this cue sheet presents information about the performance. The cue sheet presents biographical information about Still and background information on the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C., which had been closed from 1982 to 1995. The cue sheet discusses the musical program ("Danzas de Panama" and two art songs) performed by the Kinara String Quartet. The cue sheet also briefly discusses the "DC Showbiz Kids," who perform the dances. (RS)
