Americana: Then and Now

  • Willis Music Kenwood Steinway Gallery 8118 Montgomery Road Cincinnati, OH, 45236 United States (map)


In a return to its flagship Americana series, CSI presents snapshots of our nation's unique song style and its evolution over time. The common thread that helps identify America's compositional aesthetic? Individualistic, multidimensional works coming from distinct composers who have been influenced by music of all time periods, genres, and regions across the world.
