Mostly American

(Mostly) American features Jazz and rock influenced pieces by both established and emerging composers. Originally conceived as a concert of American works but we couldn’t help putting the delightful You Never Know What’s Around the Corner by Irish composer Stephen Gardner on the program as well.

This concert also features the World Premiere performance of Daniel Silliman‘s It’s a Trap!, the winner of the first AFA/ACM prize for composition, a collaboration between ACM and Houston based American Festival for the Arts.
