Description

Recently hailed by the New York Times for “illuminating essential truths about the music,” the Music from Copland House ensemble returns to Caramoor in Songs America Loves to Sing, a vibrant, wide-ranging program featuring concert works inspired by the sounds of country, jazz, folk, ragtime, tango, and spirituals. Includes music by Aaron Copland (selections from Old American Songs) Pulitzer Prize-winner John Harbison (Songs America Loves to Sing), Mark O’Connor (selections from Poets and Prophets, inspired by Johnny Cash), Pierre Jalbert (Crossings, a Copland House commission), John Mackey (Breakdown Tango), Hale Smith (his classic setting of Amazing Grace), and Florence Price (Gonna Wake Up Singin’), as well as the pioneers of ragtime (Scott Joplin) and jazz (W. C. Handy).
