Music of America

While composers from Europe dominated the music landscape from the Medieval era until World War II, many of music’s greatest innovators since 1945 have come from the United States. Join us as we sing Samuel Barber’s choral classic Reincarnations, Morten Lauridsen’s magical Fire Song Madrigals, and American Spirituals arranged by Moses Hogan. We will also perform works by three composers born since 1970: Eric Whitacre, Stacy Garrop, and Loretta Notareschi. We are excite to reprise Notareschi’s Italia Mia, commissioned in 2007 and premiered in 2008 by Sacred & Profane.
