Chamber Music Society of LC: America! at Alice Tully Hall

Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center

1941 Broadway, New York, NY 10023

Had Mendelssohn made it to America on his Grand Tour, he surely would have relished the openness and optimism that energizes this country like no other. This season’s concluding program pays tribute to that spirit through the music of five of America’s master composers, who bring diversity, invention, and immediate appeal to this ebullient homeland celebration. —CMS
