Erie Philharmonic "In Your Home Series - Americana"

americana

Thursday, November 19 · 8:00pm
WQLN PBS (channel 54.1)

Daniel Meyer music director

Selections to include music from:

  • Burleigh, arr. Christina Dolanc Wade in the Water; Deep River; Ride On, King Jesus

  • Anderson Plink, Plank, Plunk

  • Gershwin Lullaby

  • Joplin, arr. William Zinn Maple Leaf Rag

  • Dvořák ‘American’ String Quartet

  • Jennifer Higdon Dance Card

  • Diamond Rounds

  • Glass Music from Company

We come home to celebrate the diversity, independent spirit, and bold creativity of our native composers. From George Gershwin’s blues-tinted tunes to the good humor of Leroy Anderson, the deeply-felt spirituality of Erie’s own Harry Burleigh, the fresh ragtime sounds of Scott Joplin, to the modern motoric rhythms of Jennifer Higdon, the American musical landscape is vast and steeped in creativity.  In this episode, the Erie Philharmonic performs works from the nineteenth century to present day, showcasing how composers can take native dance, song, and rhythm, and combine it all into a distinctively American voice.

This concert will be made available online during the week following the broadcast. Please watch our social media accounts for more information.
