AMERICAN MUSIC-MICHAEL KAMEN
Are there great American composers? Here is one. This is just a small sampling of what he has done for American music.
I am taking all of my AP classes to a performance of our local Philharmonic Orchestra. They are sponsoring a concert for schools celebrating Lincoln's 200th birthday. We'll hear Civil War music and other American music, most notably Aaron Copland's music (Fanfare for The Common Man) I hope. American music is as good as any in the world. Listen to Michael Kamen and enjoy. I love his stuff. You will too.
