About Primous Fountain


`“Fountain is next in lineage of great composers like Shostakovitch, Stravinsky…”

This is history making! This is the first time in world history that a symphony orchestra, of 80 musicians, travels performing the music of only one composer - Primous Fountain.

He is the future!

Quincy Jones, the famed producer, impresario, was the first to recognized the genius of the young composer in his teens when he studied the manuscript of the young composer's orchestra work ‘Manifestation’. This was before any of Fountain’s music was ever performed! Jones immediately became Fountain’s patron and mentor. This was the start of a close relationship between Jones and Fountain. During many years.
Later Quincy Jones commissioned Fountain to compose his Second Symphony. This Symphony 2 was 10 years in the making.
Before Primous Fountain World Tour Quincy Jones has statement recently for the media:

“I met Primous when he was 16 years old and took him out of the ghetto in Chicago back in the 70's. I always have and always will believe in him because of his talent and heart. I've found it rare to see a composer as committed as he is, but he has been that way all his life and I have no doubt that he is the future!"

Arthur Mitchell choreographed "Manifestations” ballet to the orchestral music of Fountain for his Dance Theatre of Harlem.
Manifestations remained the signature ballet of this world renowned company touring the world for years, with great success.
