In addition to selected passages from Whitman’s groundbreaking poetry and prose, the performance also features the compositions of Amy Beach, Aaron Copland, Charles Ives and Brown University’s Eric Nathan. The concert will conclude with the premiere of Francine Trester’s chamber opera about Florence Price, America’s first black female composer to have a symphony performed by a major American orchestra.
