About The Event

Classical music audiences might be surprised to know just how much classical music has been written in America since WWII, in styles that reflect a modern sound and represent diverse aesthetics. In this concert taking place in one of the museum’s contemporary art galleries, faculty from the Music Settlement perform works by modern American composers, ranging from Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw to African American composer Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, concert music by comedic classical composer Peter Schickele, and fiddle music arranged by Paul Kirk.
