Pick-Staiger Concert Hall | Evanston, Illinois

This program celebrates the strength and nobility of America, drawing connections between various periods and aspects of our country’s rich history. William Schuman, one of the most noteworthy American musical figures of the mid-twentieth century, is celebrated today through three significant pieces. His Chester and When Jesus Wept set timeless melodies from the Revolutionary-era American songbook “The New England Psalm Singer,” composed by the first American choral composer William Billings.  Charles Ives's Variations on "America” renders the familiar patriotic melody in numerous settings, ranging from light-heartedly playful to powerfully bold. Commando March, written the year after Samuel Barber was drafted into the Air Force, encapsulates the patriotic spirt of American soldiers during WWII. This reflection on America's adventurous spirit concludes with an exhilarating piece by lauded American film composer John Williams.
