The American story has captured the world’s imagination. Even if tarnished by the reality of American fact, behind the muddy reality lies a golden thread that has been the foundation for masterpieces in countless forms the world over. This concert reflects and refracts the light of that golden idea through the kaleidoscope of what might have been and what may still yet be.
