The American Landscape: Traditional Music And Art of the United States

“I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear” – Walt Whitman

Travel the highways and byways of this vast country as we delve into the diversity of our unique musical and artistic landscapes. Several local visual artists will add their perspectives to our music as we bring you selections from Folksong Mass by Japanese American composer Paul Chihara, arrangements of Amish folksongs by Mark Templeton, African American spirituals arranged by Moses Hogan and Stacey Gibbs, and traditional Quaker and American Harp songs arranged by Jocelyn Hagen, Alice Parker, and Shawn Kirchner. Our Alameda performance will be and interdisciplinary experience free to the public, featuring an exhibit on the theme of the American landscape with works by glass artist Kim Webster, textile artist George-Ann Bowers, painter Mi’Chelle Fredrick, mixed-media artists Åke and Leslie Grundits, and others, supported by a generous grant from the City of Alameda.
