Music from Copland House’s adventurous and exhilarating concerts link America’s composers to their musical and cultural ancestry and to the wider worlds of literature, theater, painting, history, nature, and science. At UChicago Presents, the acclaimed resident ensemble from Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home and mezzo-soprano Susan Graham explore what it is to be American with a brand-new work by Richard Danielpour on poetry by former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove.

This concert is presented with funding from a UChicago Arts Grant and the Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture.
