HOUGHTON -- The Superior Wind Symphony will perform "American Voices" at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 13, in the Rozsa Center.
The diverse history of our country has provided a vast musical palette that is easily identifiable as the "American Sound." The concert will feature music by Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland and Florence Price.
"Our country's cultural heritage is incredibly diverse, and our music reflects this eclectic tradition," says Nicholas Enz, conductor. "Elements of music from Latin America, Africa and Native America are foundational building blocks for these composers. From vaudeville to New Orleans Dixieland Jazz, this will be a concert to remember."
The symphony and its some fifty players, are well known for liveliness and humor, as well as excellent musicianship.
Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students. To obtain more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Rozsa Box Office at 487-3200 or at www.tickets.mtu.edu. Tickets are also available at the door.
