The Spirit of America in Music

The program at Central Library will feature a small group of singers from the Chorale who will perform, a capella, examples of music that will be sung at their America Sings concert this June. To demonstrate the power of the music with accompaniment, the program will also include recorded samples backed by a full orchestra.

Dr. Stephen Gothold, Music Director and Conductor of Chorale Bel Canto, will provide background information about American musical traditions. The Chorale’s America Sings concert on June 8 will include selections from The Testament of Freedom, words by Thomas Jeff erson and music by Randall Thompson; Frostiana, a cycle of poems by Robert Frost set by Randall Thompson; two choruses by Aaron Copland, and a one-act concert version of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.
