ROS’s glorious, rich sonority is showcased in this program of great choral works by Aaron Copland, R. Nathaniel Dett, Randall Thompson, Jean Ford, and Norman Dello Joio with keyboard accompaniment. Be there for the NY premiere of “We Are On Native Land,” by Brent Michael Davids, as well as the opportunity to visit with representatives of Native American Community Services prior to the concert. Opera choruses, psalms, spirituals, and a jubilant Walt Whitman setting written in the year and month of ROS’s founding, make for an unforgettable evening of music.
This program is made possible in part by the Farash Foundation and Monroe County.1040 East Avenue
