The USA provides the theme for our youth choir's showcase concert celebrating the rich heritage of the great American Songbook. From Copland’s Shaker inspired Simple Gifts (from Appalachian Spring) to RR Bennett's Letters, written after he moved to New York, this concert comes from the heart of America.
