CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, August 26, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Music from the USA

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni will bring us music from the USA.

With the international prevalence of composers like Eric Whitacre, Philip Glass and Samuel Barber, the distinct beauty of American music has touched the world. It’s a sound that could be described as settled, but somehow not content. There is an edge in that glorious beauty that somehow reflects a nation still defining its artistic voice to the rest of the world.

You will hear the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the Choir of New College Oxford, the Vancouver Chamber Choir, and the Los Angeles Master Choral and Orchestra.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, there are 10 classical streams, available 24 / 7. You can also check out the Choral Concert blog plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
