Presented by Mirror Visions Ensemble

Sunday, March 31, 2019 @ 5PM

Abigail Levis, mezzo-soprano
Scott Murphree, tenor
Mischa Bouvier, baritone
Grant Wenaus, piano

When you think “this land is ours,” what do you feel? Pride, wonder, comfort and excitement? “This Land Is Ours” is a sung celebration of urban, suburban, and rural life – its moods, landscapes and sounds. The music featured in this concert is by immigrants (Kurt Weill, Paul Hindemith, Hanns Eisler, and Erich Korngold), women (Ruth Crawford Seeger, Francine Trester), and African Americans (Adolphus Hailstork, Brittney Boykin, Florence Price, and Leslie Adams), as well as by classic American composers (Charles Ives, Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber, and Pete Seeger). “This Land Is Ours” also includes world premieres from Mohammed Fairouz, Braxton Blake, and Harold Meltzer.

The concert features Abigail Levis, mezzo-soprano; Scott Murphree, tenor; Mischa Bouvier, baritone; and Grant Wenaus, piano.

Tickets: $20 ($15 students)
