CSO explores American musical identity.
"I've put together a program around the idea of American musical identity. We'll hear how Charles Ives toyed with the rhythms of ragtime, Tania León fractured Cuban-American modernism, and how early New Englanders fused the sacred and secular into a vibrant tradition of Sacred Harp singing. American music has always been a stacking of influences, a mirror of ourselves." —Timo Andres
