Spirit of America
American culture encompasses the customs and traditions of the United States, including language, religion, food and the arts. American culture has been shaped by European immigrants, American Indians, Latin Americans, Africans and Asians. America is described as a “melting pot” in which these different cultures have contributed their own distinct flavors and influences, and it is the most culturally diverse country in the world.
It is in this “spirit” that this concert is a celebration of several of these contributions: folksongs and hymns of America, African-American, and more notably, a newly commissioned work for adult chorus, children’s chorus, soloists and orchestra by Chickasaw composer and Oklahoma native, Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate.
Also featured will be “Wings of Fire” written by Oklahoma City University composer-in-residence and award-winning composer, Edward Knight, and is a nine-part choral cycle calling on blues and gospel, chant and hymns. This work is inspired by the Book of Psalms (particularly Psalm 51) and the poetry of Langston Hughes. Hughes, an African-American author, was most concerned with the uplifting of his people, whose strengths, resiliency, courage and humor he wanted to record as part of the general American experience. And finally, included will be The American Songbook, with a cappella folksong and hymn selections by such composers as Aaron Copland, Alice Parker, and Moses Hogan.
Joining the Canterbury adult chorus for this concert are the Canterbury Youth Choruses and guest artist soloists. During the current political climate, Spirit of America will showcase and remind us all of the rich culture of America and our history of immigration.
