'Beginnings' and 'Firsts' on The American Sound, 6 pm Saturday
If you're like me, then you couldn't wait to check off the first thing on your New Year's to-do list. As they say, the journey begins with a single step. So in the spirit of putting the first weekend of the new year on the right foot, tune in toÂ The American SoundÂ Saturday at 6 pmÂ for beautiful and inspiring American music about "firsts," "new things" and "beginnings." We'll hearÂ the first piano concerto composed by an American woman, the New Federal Overture by one of Americaâs first composers â Jams Hewitt âÂ and Cole PorterâsÂ Begin the Beguine. And we'll take the Gospel Train to a new destination with one of Morton Gould'sÂ Spirituals for Strings. Join me for American music for a good beginnings onÂ The American Sound, Saturday at 6 pm on Classical 101!
