Description

for SATB, solo soprano, brass quintet, piano, and percussion A brilliant choral celebration of seven American legends (Phillis Wheatley, George Washington, Jenny Lind, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Clyde William Thornbaugh, Charles Lindbergh, Louis Armstrong). Energetic and appealing, the music culminates in a wordless finale which celebrates Louis Armstrong and the jazz clubs of the 1930s by mixing up six familiar classics.show more
