On March 17, at 7:30 pm, the Juilliard-trained siblings of the ANNIE MOSES BAND will be performing American Rhapsody at the Temple Theater at Angelina College. Written and arranged by the ANNIE MOSES BAND, American Rhapsody is a panoramic exploration of America and her music. Featuring favorites from Aaron Copland, George Gershwin and other American originals, the show is a melting pot of classical and bluegrass, progressive folk and stunning traditional melodies.

Beginning with a rousing arrangement of the New England colonial tune, “The Girl I Left Behind Me,” American Rhapsody traces a musical trail West, rediscovering timeless songs that defined American music like “Summertime,” “Shenandoah,” as well as forging new ground in originals like the epic Copland-esque number, “Go West, Pioneer!” American Rhapsody is a new step in the celebrated career of the ANNIE MOSES BAND. With accolades that include 1200+ hours on PBS, two chart topping albums and recent debuts at Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry, ANNIE MOSES BAND is redefining American music.
“With American Rhapsody, we wanted to cover the scope of the American musical landscape,” says Annie Dupre, lead vocalist. “We can’t wait to share this cinematic experience with audiences.”
