The wcfsymphony shares their Sounds American Festival with an exciting concert featuring a wide array of American musical styles. The program begins with Adam Schoenberg’s American Symphony, which was inspired by the world’s hope for a brighter future during the 2008 U.S. Presidential election.
PROJECT Trio, an ensemble best described as a cross between chamber musicians and rock stars, collaborates with wcfsymphony to present an eclectic and vibrant mix of almost every major American musical style. The concert concludes with Bernstein’s suite On the Waterfront -- based off his music for Elia Kazan’s movie of the same name -- that features both emotional love themes and a savagely aggressive percussion section. Join Iowa Public Radio’s Symphonies of Iowa to experience this very American performance by the wcfsymphony on Sunday, February 1, 2015, at 4 p.m. and again on Monday, February 2, 2015, at 7 p.m. on Iowa Public Radio Classical.
