Americans like to move. We’re always going somewhere – to work, to the mall, to a new city, to a foreign county – you name it, we’re heading there.
And there’s no better time to move than in the dead of winter. Pent-up and cabin-bound, our winter selves itch to get out – or at least, if we must remain indoors, to get down.
On The American Sound this Saturday evening at 6 pm we’ll do our fair share of getting down and getting out with high-octane dance music by Aaron Copland and music from the Golden Age of that classic American dance form — the cakewalk. We’ll also take a trip through some quaint New England towns with the music of Charles Ives. Who knows? Your feet might just find themselves tapping.
Join me Saturday at 6 pm for music to move to onÂ The American SoundÂ on Classical 101!
