Prolific and influential, many call William Grant Still the "Dean of African American composers" and it’s not hard to see why. The first African American to conduct a major American symphony orchestra, the first to have a symphony (his first symphony) performed by a leading orchestra, the first to have an opera performed by a major opera company, and the first to have an opera performed on national television, William Grant Still broke barriers.  Still composed his Serenade for Orchestra in 1957 on a commission by the Great Falls High School in Great Falls, Montana.  The piece reflects Still’s interest in American folk idioms, with conventional melodies and harmonies that nonetheless express a fresh and individual compositional voice.
