Program #2144

There’s an hour of music not necessarily for children’s listening, but music written for their voices on this edition of New Sounds. Titled “Songs Of Innocence,” the show features works that incorporate children's voices, from a variety of composers including Hugues Courson, John Williams {the guitarist, not the film composer}, Lars Hollmer, Tan Dun, and others.
