Music in the American Wild: Missouri Music at 200

In Missouri Music at 200, the American Wild Ensemble will perform six new works of contemporary classical chamber music written by Missouri-connected composers in a series of live and virtual performances. Works by Stefan Freund, Barbara Harbach, Marcus Lewis, Mike Murray, Chris Stark, and Ingrid Stölzel take inspiration from Missouri history and musical traditions. Each program will bring together these new musical works with poetry by Karen Craigo, Glenn North, and Alice Azure and commentary from organizational partners. We hope to inspire audiences to celebrate and reflect on Missouri’s past, present, and future!
