The American Muse #0228
We celebrate American composers with a program of colorful works to match every mood. From the new-age patterns of William Doerrfeld to the rags of Scott Joplin, from church pieces to concert toccatas we’ll explore the vast domain of American organ music. Fresh, exciting and new would be ways to describe the music you’ll hear.
