COFFEE: FESTIVAL OF AMERICAN MUSIC: Two Americas

Friday, March 26, 2021 11:00am

Event Description

FRI 26 MAR 2021 :: The fifth annual Festival of American Music at the Louisville Orchestra continues to ignore traditional boundaries between orchestras and their audiences. First on this program is 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 10AM in Whitney Hall, the LO, together with WUOL, offers a free, pre-concert discussion hosted by radio program direction Daniel Gilliam.
