Trailblazers have mapped the course of American music as much as American history. We open our season with a gathering of these singular voices from the dearly loved Spirituals and folksongs of Stephen Foster to “Clapping Music” by pioneer Steve Reich and “Fly Away I” by the brilliant young composer Caroline Shaw, a Shepherd School graduate and Pulitzer Prize-winner. The contrarian Charles Ives will also be there, but you’ll hear a side of him you would never imagine.
