COPLAND: Fanfare for the Common Man
WINEGLASS: Alone Together
Captured on March 28, 2021
Copland’s iconic “Fanfare for the Common Man" was one of 18 fanfares written by various American composers during the dark days of World War II to promote feelings of patriotism and national unity. Copland wanted to honor the common man who performed his deeds of heroism not on the battlefield but on the home front.
"Alone Together" by multiple ®EMMY award-winning composer John Christopher Wineglass addresses the social issues we have all been facing during the pandemic, from not being able to perform together to systemic racial disparities.
