Take a musical journey through the lens of American Composers. Enjoy the spectacular sounds of Grofé’s Grand Canyon Suite and the “simple gifts” of Copland’s Appalachian Spring Suite –both of which are included on NPR’s list of the 100 most important American Musical compositions of the 20th century. Be inspired by Valerie Coleman’s new work Seven O’Clock Shout, an anthem dedicated to frontline workers and the cheers given to them from the windows of NYC residents Any American Adventure would not be complete without Gershwin’s An American in Paris, the piece that was inspired by his trip Paris.
