American Spirituals, Books One and Two, in concert

My American Spirituals, Book One and American Spirituals, Book Two are joining Schubert and Bach on a concert Friday night at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. It’s Friday, January 21, 2011, 7:30 pm.

Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim will play Book One, and Pittsburgh  Symphony Orchestra Principal Cellist Anne Martindale Williams, Book Two, accompanied by Paul Jones. Philadelphia Orchestra members Rachel Ku and Joseph Conyers will also solo in the first half, and everyone will come together in the second half for Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet.

I wrote these works for David and Anne as part of a project spearheaded by Paul, and they’ve also recorded them.
