“MADE IN AMERICA” (Free Concerts)

Our series of free classical concerts continues with an exciting program of music by American composers. Jubilant music by Phoenix’s Ron Nelson opens the program, followed by “Chiaroscuro,” by our Music Director’s long-time friend and colleague, the late Ellsworth Milburn. Comforting “romantic” sounds from two other American composers, Aaron Copland and Howard Hanson, balance this remarkable program of new—but not necessarily “modern”—music.
