WKAR's Mark Bashore hosts this special live broadcast on 90.5 FM.

The genius of American composition is celebrated in this concert – from Bernstein’s affirmative Chichester Psalms to a trip across our great USA with Michael Daugherty, to the accessibly jazzy American in Paris. Joan Kwuon, whom the NY Times describes as "fiery, intensely musical and impassioned," made her Tanglewood debut at the invitation of André Previn in 2000, and her recital debut at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall the following season.  Her virtuosity and radiant stage presence have been seen and heard on The Today Show, CBS News and National Public Radio.
