Bravo 4: Alluvial Soundscape
March 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Inspirations from the river that unites us. A tribute to the ancient Mississippian Culture featuring clarinetist Ken Graves.
History meets symphony in composer James Lee III’s Visions of Cahokia, inspired by the ancient capital of Mississippian Native American culture that flourished along the waterways of North America before European contact. Hear an impressionistic journey out to sea in Debussy’s atmospheric La Mer, while Copland’s gorgeously fluid Clarinet Concerto gets star treatment by MSO’s own Ken Graves.
James Lee, III The celebrated composer graduated from the University of Michigan with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree. His orchestral works have been commissioned and premiered by the National Symphony Orchestra, as well as prominent orchestras across the country and around the world. Lee is a winner of a Charles Ives Scholarship and the Wladimir Lakond Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and is currently a Professor of Music at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD.
