April 20, 2014, Washington, D.C. -- The Capital City Symphony, a founding Arts Partners at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in NE Washington, D.C., is presenting a two-part American MusicFest in March and May of 2014. Part I, which was held on March 23, focused on 21st composers, including local composer Scott Pender, Jennifer Higdon of Philadelphia, and DC-native Steven Gerber, now living in New York, with guest artist Robert Spates, Violin. Part II, on May 4 at 5:00pm will include two favorite works by Samuel Barber, with guest artist local soprano Mary Gresock.
Artistic Director and Conductor Victoria Gau explains: “I find myself increasingly drawn to the incredibly rich array of new classical music being written by American composers The idea of including music by my two friends, Scott Pender and Steven Gerber, got me started. It wasn’t hard to find the additions of Jennifer Higdon’s exquisite Blue Cathedral, and a perennial favorite, Howard Hanson’s Symphony No. 2.”
The May concert will feature two favorite works by Samuel Barber, and with Mary Gresock, soprano. The program will also include a non-American work, the popular Brahms Symphony No. 2.
