    Our Voices: The Rise of the American Voice

    Philadelphia Chamber Music Society

    300 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102
    • Friday January 24th 2020, 7:30pm to 9:30pm

    American composers flocked to France during and after the war to study with Nadia Boulanger, who exhorted them to embrace their personal identities and seek out the “American voice.” This final program connects their contributions to contemporary composers Tania León, Caroline Shaw, and Nico Muhly, whose work acknowledges the interconnectedness of people and cultures in 21st century America.

    This concert is part of the Emerging Voices Project that explores national identity and social connection through art song.
