The year 2022 provides an opportunity for the world to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of composer and pianist George Walker. We are fortunate that Dr. Walker left a substantial body of orchestral music. This article provides a comprehensive list of pieces for orchestra, hopeful that this may make it possible for Walker’s works to be performed by CODA member ensembles in celebration of his achievements and of his milestone birthday.
