Presented by Salastina Music Society
Explore a remarkable new work that reflects on the coming together of cultures in societies consisting of many generations of immigrants. Award-winning local composer Derrick Spiva wrote American Mirror specifically for Salastina to present in their Sounds Genius format.
Resident Host Brian Lauritzen interviews Spiva as the musicians demonstrate the cultural origins of different elements in the work and guide the audience in their musical role in the performance of this timely and outstanding piece.
Bridge to Everywhere, an organization that celebrates cultural diversity through interwoven musical traditions, partners with Salastina in this project with an art installation that embodies the spirit and intention of Spiva’s piece.
