“Musical Passport” with the Harmonium Winds

Sunday, August 12, 3:00 p.m.


Looking through the lens of American immigration for the past two centuries, Harmonium Winds has developed a program that reflects the nationalities and cultures that have created the melting pot of American music.

As immigrants came to the United States they brought things that were familiar to them, including their music.  Between the mid 1800s and the present day, the United States has welcomed and assimilated millions of immigrants and their music from all over the globe. Harmonium Winds will perform music representing some of these countries, including Italy, Russia, Spain, Ireland, Argentina and Mexico.
