"Lend an ear to Lyric Fest’s rich celebration of America singing. Hear our “strong melodious songs,”  of Appalachian mountains and tent revivals, of concert halls and cotton fields, the west, the east, the whaling north, and Faulkner’s south. An all American roster of composers including Stephen Foster, George Crumb, Ives, Barber, Copland and more. Featuring a newly commissioned work by Kile Smith and a commissioned arrangement by John Conahan. With Tony Boutté, Troy Cook, Suzanne DuPlantis, Michelle Johnson, and Laura Ward, Piano." 

I've made a brand new arrangement for four solo voices and piano of I Hear America Singing, the title song of the musical premeired last season by the Skylight Music Theater in Milwaukee is featured.
