Symphony No. 1 “Afro-American” William Grant Still
What could be more American than Gershwin’s An American in Paris, a jazz-inspired tour of the French capital through the eyes of an American tourist? How about William Grant Still’s Afro-American Symphony, an overlooked American gem infused with the blues, spirituals and the sounds of the jazz age all blended together in a traditional classical form. Add in the swing, funk and bebop styles reflected in Daron Hagen’s Concerto for Flugelhorn, and you have the perfect soundscape for our “Americana” concert.
