CLASSICS: FESTIVAL OF AMERICAN MUSIC: Two Americas

Saturday, March 27, 2021 8:00pm

Event Description

27 MAR 2021 :: Teddy Abrams leads the LO in a fascinating program of dual Americas. On the concert’s first half, he evokes the dreamy sound world and rueful yearnings of America’s great romantic nostalgist, Samuel Barber. Then, a new work for voices and orchestra by Brooklyn-based composer Gabriel Kahane examines the urgent plight of homelessness today and the humanity of those grappling with its effects.

CONCERT TALK: Starting at 6:45PM in Whitney Hall, the LO, together with WUOL, offers a free, pre-concert discussion hosted by radio program director Daniel Gilliam.
