|Event Name||American Voices: A Journey Through Song|
|Start Date||26th Sep 2016 12:45pm|
Admission free, all welcome
American Song, like Topsy in Uncle Tom’s Cabin, ‘just growed’”, as Carol Kimball observes – and this growth resulted in an eclectic output mirroring the melting pot of America’s vibrant 20th-century culture.
The composers in this programme forged distinctive voices that formed the backbone of the American sound, creating melodic, emotive works that captured hearts and imaginations and inspired modern generations, both at home and abroad.
