Jubilant voices & vivid classics — featuring pianist Randy Klein & vocalist Aurelia Williams 

Gershwin’s jazzy 1920s portrait of An American in Paris sets the tone for a program designed to express the full range of the American experience. Composer Randy Klein brings his distinctive style to vocal settings on four of Margaret Walker’s greatest poems. Also on the program a reading of Alice Walker’s poem “Remember,” Jessie Montgomery’s Black spiritual-based composition Source Code, and Copland’s infectious Rodeo.
