America, Vol. 1 is the first concert in a new series exploring the rich tapestry that encompasses American classical music. Throughout the multi-year initiative, you’ll experience the music you love to hear, and music that rings true across all the GSO ensembles. These works capture the quintessential essence of the wide reaching American experience. Excitement, exhilaration, the depths of solitude, and more – the first works in our series are bound by their directness of expression and genuine approach to connecting with listeners. Barber’s iconic Adagio is unforgettable in this special setting with the GSO Chamber Chorus.
Hanson: Symphony No. 2 “Romantic”
Barber: Adagio for Strings/Agnus Dei with GSO Chamber Chorus
Copland: Old American Songs with GSO Chorus
