Colorful stories of a great nation
Explore the remarkable flowering of American music ? North, South, native, and immigrant. American Mosaics II will take you all the way from the bristling energy of Curt Cacioppo?s Lenape Refrains, in its world premiere, to the jazzy swing of Aaron Copland?s Clarinet Concerto, featuring the dazzling clarinetist David Krakauer in his Classical Symphony debut.
