American music sounds different from music of any other country. But what gives American music its unique sound?

Beginning tomorrow, we’ll try to answer this question in a new program that explores great classical music with an American accent. Join me Saturday, January 5 at 6 p.m. on Classical 101 for the premiere of The American Sound.

On Saturday’s program we’ll tour the United States in all its rich musical diversity: from works infused with the musical sounds of the Big Apple and depicting summer in a small southern town, to performances by the finest ensembles from coast to coast and solo appearances by some true American legends. And we’ll wrap it all up with the foot-tappin’ sounds of Appalachia.

Go Classically American! Don’t miss the premiere of The American Sound Saturday, Jan. 5 at 6 p.m. on Classical 101.
