Concert: Along a Desert Highway

Works inspired by the grandeur, drama, mystery, and danger of the American West!

The program features Red River, which, according to its much-acclaimed young composer Mason Bates, “traces the journey of the great Colorado River to its various destinations in the Southwest, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, the California desert,” and includes recorded sounds from the region. Native American Portraits by the beloved, 85-year-young master David Amram is based on the music of the Cheyenne, Zuni, and Seneca-Cayuga nations. Copland House’s 2014 CULTIVATE Fellow David Biedenbender‘s Red Vesper is an expansive meditation on Utah’s majestic Capitol Reef National Park, and was written especially for the emerging composers institute.
