Maurice Whitney (1909 – 1984) spent most of his career as a soloist, conductor and composer based in New York and Florida. Additionally, he was a church choirmaster and organist and taught at public schools and colleges. As a composer, he wrote for theater, dance groups, instrumental ensembles, and choirs. Whitney’s Rumba (1949) was dedicated to Sigurd Rascher and features syncopated rhythms and call-and-response that are often found in traditional rhumbas.
This piano accompaniment was created for practicing, score studying, and other educational settings.
