Join us in Celebrating Great Music of American Composers of the Past and Present at NCE’s Concert: AMERICAN LANDSCAPE
Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre
NCE proudly celebrates International Women’s Day all week long and salutes great American music by putting the spotlight on the music of great American composer Amy Beach (1867-1944).
Amy Marcy Beach was a legendary music composer and pianist and was the best woman composer of the time in the United States who also achieved great popularity in Europe. As a woman, she defied all traditional conventions and set foot to achieve success in a world of musical maestros to create some of the most notable works of the time. NCE’s musical tribute to the USA will also include several works of great American composers of the past and present:
Aaron Copland, Lowell Liebermann, and Andreas Makris.
Hosted by JaLynn Prince
This concert will feature NCE members:Leo Sushansky (artistic director/violin), Frank Conlon (piano) and Lukasz Szyrner (cello)
Young guest artist, violinist Sean Ganous also joins Leo Sushansky in a performance of the work by composer Andreas Makris for two violins. In 1970, Mr. Makris became the first contemporary composer to have his work premiered at the Kennedy Center. He served as the National Symphony Orchestra’s composer in residence from 1979-1989.
