For many years, I’ve taken great pleasure in creating “All-American” programs for July 4th. Every piece that airs on my show tomorrow will have at least one American aspect – composer, ensemble, soloist, conductor, or in some cases, all of the above! This country has produced some amazing musical talent over the years and continues to do so.
Needless to say, our very own Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will be heard on my show tomorrow, with Maestra Marin Alsop conducting. Featured composers will include Leonard Bernstein, William Grant Still, and George Whitefield Chadwick. So, whether you’re staying home this July 4th or heading out to celebrate with friends and loved ones, I hope you’ll join me for a bit of patriotic programming. Have a safe and happy holiday, and stay tuned!4th of July, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, George Whitefield Chadwick, holiday, Independence Day, Leonard Bernstein, Marin Alsop, William Grant Still
