Americana: A Cultural Tapestry

  • Weston Art Gallery 650 Walnut Street Cincinnati, OH, 45202 United States


In the first concert of its Americana series, join Cincinnati Song Initiative in a program exploring the various cultural influences on the emerging genre of American art song.  From the writings of sixteenth-century English queens to our country’s rich African American heritage to modern commodities like Craigslist, this program sheds light on some of the most influential sources of inspiration for American composers of song.  Featured composers include Stephen Foster, Charles Ives, William Grant Still, Undine Moore, Ned Rorem, Libby Larsen, and others.
