Tribue! Ansel Adams: America & American Composers – Brubeck, Copland & Ellington
Celebrate the spirit of our country, its national parks, and stunning photography along with the Michigan premiere of Ansel Adams: America, the Adrian Boyer Concerto and Aria winners, and Bay View Concert Orchestra.
Ansel Adams: America is a symphonic tribute saluting one of America’s most cherished artists, composed by Chris and Dave Brubeck. The 22-minute, one-movement piece, fully integrates sweeping melodies with 102 striking images of or by Ansel. Few people realize that Ansel Adams trained to be a classical musician, a fact which greatly influenced the work. It has consistently played to full houses, and has succeeded in its mission to bring new and larger audiences to orchestra concerts.
