About Us

Welcome to AfriClassical.com from William J. Zick, Webmaster! The Web site was launched in 2000 as a nonprofit educational venture promoting awareness of African Heritage in Classical Music.  The first page was devoted to Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges and within a few months was joined by pages on several other composers and musicians of African descent.

Black Classical Music is a global phenomenon.  Site visitors now come from over 100 countries each year.  The site is available in two languages, English and French.  AfriClassical Blog is a companion resource which can be reached from any page of the website via a link in the left column.  

We hope this page will help you find specific information if you need it, or will help you decide where you would like to browse if your visit is a more general one.
