This Land Is Ours, featuring commissioned work by H. Leslie Adams, Jan 19 and 29


Jan 29 2020 - 7:00pm

Mirror Visions Ensemble will be performing Leslie Adams' "Heart of a Woman" arranged for Tenor, Baritone, and Piano, as part of its This Land Is Ours concert on January 19th at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT, and January 29 2020 in Baltimore at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, as part of the school's cultural programming.

"This land is ours. But what is this land, and who are we? Or—in the words of Maxwell Anderson—how can you tell an American? There’s more than one answer, but an art song has more than one voice…who, perhaps, were sent to eat in the kitchen when company came, those who arrived at our sea-washed, sunset gates from far away, and those who left them never to return—all these and more are represented on our program. From this kaleidoscopic range of topics and creators emerge four American tableaux, interwoven with no fewer than ten world premieres."
