O Beautiful! American Music: A July Fourth Special
Sun, 6 p.m.

New American Music for Voices: A July Fourth Special at 6 pm.

The Western Wind, America's longest running professional vocal ensemble has created a collection of vibrant new works for voices. O Beautiful! American Music presents music by Meredith Monk, William Bolcom, Tania Leon, Matthew Harris, Eric Salzman, Robert Dennis, Billy Joel, Elliot Z. Levine and Gayla Morgan. Interviews with the composers and arrangers are woven into the show. The title is taken from Gayla Morgan's brilliant pastiche of "America the Beautiful" and "Rte.66" with an allusion to "I Like to be in America" from West Side Story. It captures the exuberance and inclusiveness of our time.
