Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra: Free School-Time and Family Concerts: American Pie

March 9 – 14, 1992

Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Calling the program American Pie is our way of saying that music -- in New York City, in the United States of America, and in the world -- comes in so many different shapes and sizes that it is almost like a great big pie of sounds cut into bite-size slices for you to enjoy.

After all, right here in the City we can step out of our apartments or into the subway and hear the sounds of Andean, Brazilian, Chinese, Dominican, Ethiopian, Irish, Jamaican, Mexican, Russian, and Syrian music (and that's naming only a few!).

You've pobably noticed that Americans are not all the same. We come in different colors, speak different languages, have different customs and ideas, and (naturally) listen to different kinds of music. So don't be surpised if our concert -- with music by Native American, African-American, Spanish-American, and Brooklyn-American composers -- comes in more than one flavor of today's special: American Pie!
