Meet the Panelists of Tafel Talks: Joseph Bologne, Black & Classical

On Wednesday May 19 at 7pm EDT, we are hosting Tafel Talks: Joseph Bologne, Black & Classical. This conversation will explore the music, life, and legacy of the influential Black violinist and composer, Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Our panel of contributors from New York, Nassau, and Toronto will unpack Bologne’s significance within past and current contexts and discuss the impact of systemic racism in music history. 

In this post, get to know the panelists and moderators of this event. 


Dr. Christine Gangelhoff is a multi-dimensional practitioner of music. She is an experienced performer; an enthusiastic teacher and mentor; an advocate for arts and cultural institutions; and a dedicated scholar. She is currently Associate Professor of Music at The University of The Bahamas and has also held positions on the faculties of Memorial University of Newfoundland and St. Thomas University in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

Dr. Gangelhoff’s academic and musical career has led her across the globe, giving her unique opportunities to delve deeply into local musical traditions. Her research into the little-known classical composers of the Caribbean has inspired albums, academic symposia, concert series, scholarly publications and most recently, an innovative textbook. Dr. Gangelhoff is a founding member of the chamber ensemble C Force. Since its formation in 2008, the group has been featured in concert throughout the Caribbean, the United States, and Canada, and has recorded three CDs of Caribbean classical compositions. Their aim is to showcase little-known classical composers of the Caribbean region in original compositions, transcriptions, and arrangements. Through her work with C Force and her extensive research, Dr. Gangelhoff has helped increase the exposure of this neglected piece of Caribbean culture.
