Music From Copland House’s adventurous and exhilarating concerts link America’s composers to their musical and cultural ancestry and to the wider worlds of literature, theater, painting, history, nature, and science. At UChicago Presents, the acclaimed resident ensemble from Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home and mezzo-soprano Susan Graham explore what it is to be American with the world premiere of A Standing Witness by Richard Danielpour on poetry by former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove.
This concert is supported by Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation. Presented by UChicago Presents in partnership with Karla Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture and UChicago Arts.
