Grant Park Chorus
The Pulitzer Project
A fascinating look at three early winners of this important classical music prize: including the rarely heard A Free Song by William Schuman (1943) and Aaron Copland's quintessentially American ballet Appalachian Spring Suite (1945). The program also features Chicago composer Leo Sowerby's The Canticle of the Sun (1946).
