This Land is Ours

  • Roeliff Jansen Community Library in Hillsdale, NY Hillsdale, NY (map)

When you think of how this land is ours, what do you feel? Pride, wonder, comfort and excitement. Ours is a sung celebration of urban, suburban, and rural life - its moods, landscapes and sounds.  Featured is music by immigrants (Kurt Weill, Paul Hindemith, Hanns Eisler, and rich 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).

Justine Aronson, soprano
Scott Murphree, tenor
Mischa Bouvier, baritone
Grant Wenaus, piano
