The Sounds of Democracy
Wednesday, October 11, 2017 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
American democracy was shaped by the ideals, vision, and principles of its leaders. The legacy of presidents such as Kennedy and Roosevelt inspired the music of Sessions and Bernstein as well as Copland, who wrote Canticle of Freedom in response to the assault on civil liberties during the McCarthy era.
