The mission of this series is to celebrate contemporary American composers who are the living legacy of our nation's musical heritage. Each episode features a different American composer and one of their songs.
This monthly interview series broadcasts via Facebook from the Of Thee I Sing page on the fourth Sunday of the month at 4pm Central time using Facebook's Watch Party platform. The composer and I are both present online for the Watch Party, and viewers are encouraged to participate with questions and comments throughout the interview.
Our next interview will be on November 22nd and will feature composer Rick Sowash and his song "Benjamin Franklin Proffers Thanks" (with text by Benjamin Franklin).
