Our Spring 2014 concert, I Hear America Singing: American Choral Music from Colonial to Contemporary, celebrates music by American composers.  For the first half of the program, we sing American music of past times, from the Revolutionary War period through music of the late 19th century Temperance movement. We devote the second half of our program to contemporary composer settings of beautiful and moving poetry.
