In partnership with:

Aaron Copland’s most popular pieces were perceived as unmistakably American, but other local composers before him incorporated spirituals, blues and dance music in symphonic forms. Classical music composers, as well as Broadway and Hollywood ones, from different origins and ethnicities worked for three decades to create a sound that has been identified with the natural and the urban landscapes of this country. George Gershwin, Florence Price, and Elmer Bernstein, among others, succeeded in incorporating local folk elements into their best works and left a musical legacy of some famous pieces and many that still deserve being rediscovered. Fantastic composers and performers today transforming and enhancing American music - ZOOM with Emanuel and learn how!
