American Portraits is a cross-section of the greatest American music which speaks most closely to the history and culture generated by the southern states. The program tells a story through selections inspired by folk songs, spirituals, poetry from the Civil War era, classic American musical theatre and jazz influences and much more. The music touches on areas of national pride, racial struggles, conflicts of war and reconciliation, with the overarching theme of peace and unity. Dynamic performers and collaborators, Tyrone Chambers, Elana Gleason and Jonathan Levin have created a unique program that gives the audience a personal glimpse into some of Americas greatest musical traditions. These internationally acclaimed artists, all of whom have lived in or grown up in the south, provide a fresh perspective on their own cultural heritage through a tremendous variety of music, from timeless masterpieces to rarely heard gems.
