Americana in the Mix

Audio will be available later today.

It's a three-song set of American music for the Fourth of July, beginning with one of our substitute National Anthems, "America," performed by the Marine Chamber Orchestra in the NPR studios. Then, Robert Spano leads the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in a world premiere performance of music from "Paul Revere's Ride" by David del Tredici. And conductor JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic close out the set on a soft note with Aaron Copland's "Letter from Home."
