Why You Will Love This Program:

  • The elegant, thoughtful solo playing of KSO Associate Concertmaster Gordon Tsai.
  • Darker America was one of William Grant Still’s earliest concert works to incorporate the blues. He described the piece as, “representative of the American Negro, and suggests triumph over sorrows through fervent prayer.”
