The spirit of America is presented with joy and reverence in this concert of regional folk-songs. You'll stomp your foot to When the Saints Go Marching In, feel the unbridled joy of authentic Americana with Copland’s The Boatman, and be moved by the spirituality and optimism of At The River. Kirke Mechem’s surprising and humorous collection of folksongs will be included, as well as the world premiere of Brian Holmes’ folksong suite commissioned by Schola Cantorum. The Oxford Street Brass rounds out this lively concert experience.
