Our American Roots

  • Tickets: $120.00-$30.00
Be it Hollywood’s “Silver Screen” or its majestic mountains, rivers and vast plains, America inspires great music and art! Czech-born composer Antonín Dvořák traveled our bustling urban centers and spacious rural landscapes at the end of the 19th century and wove a beautiful tapestry of American traditional styles with Western European symphonic traditions, leading to the work of Aaron Copland and Joan Tower. John Williams and Erich Korngold took that inspiration and created epic scores that have become the soundtracks of our lives. Violin superstar Elena Urioste takes to the stage with Michael Christie and the New West Symphony for this kaleidoscopic event celebrating America’s musical heritage.
