Hailed by The New York Times for “all the richness of its offerings,” and “illuminated essential truths about the music,” the Music from Copland House ensemble makes its first visit – virtually – to the Bowdoin Music Festival, with a wide-ranging concert called Passages. The all-American program features works by award-winning composers John Harbison, Pierre Jalbert, Annika Socolofsky, and John Musto, who take viewers on spiritual, imagined, real, and personal journeys.
Music from Copland House (MCH) has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, NPR, Euro-Radio, and other major media; and engaged by Tanglewood, the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Smithsonian Institution, Library of Congress, University of Chicago, Monday Evening Concerts in Los Angeles, and the Caramoor, Bard, Ecstatic, and SONiC Festivals. It also records extensively, and presents mainstage concert series just north of New York City (in Westchester County), and at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. The ensemble boasts a stellar roster of Founding, Principal, and Guest Artists, of whom, The Chicago Tribune raved, “Copland would have been proud of all of them.”
