"Anastasia Antonacos, piano: Celebrating Convocation." 

  • usm school of music, gorham campus Gorham, ME USA (map)

Spend the evening exploring this year's USM Convocation theme of "Race & Participatory Democracy" with Annie, the Portland Piano Trio, and USM SoM alumna Teresa Herold.  We'll hear music inspired by democratic ideals and political events in America and beyond over the past 150 years, including works by Afro-British composer Samuel Coleridge Taylor and American composer Amy Beach, who persisted as a professional composer and pianist long before it was considered acceptable for women to do so.

 

[Program also includes Liszt, Janacek, American composer Frederic Rzewski, and MAYBE some John Luther Adams, who writes pieces in response to climate change.]
