Songs of Hope
TCS is proud to feature three contemporary female composers whose work captures the American experience. Missy Mazzoli's River Rouge Transfiguration draws inspiration from the dynamic landscape of Detroit. Gabriela Lena Frank's Elegía Andina explores the composer's multicultural (Lithuanian-Jewish-Chinese-Peruvian-Spanish) identity. Joan Tower's Made in America is an uplifting meditation on how we can keep our country beautiful, even in times of uncertainty and turmoil. The program opens with two world premieres: a new work by Tim Kiah commemorating the 1920 ratification of the 19th amendment, which secured women's right to vote; and a concerto for two horns by Mike Boyman, featuring TCS musicians Jessica Santiago and Emily Wong.
