Hear how artworks by William Merritt Chase, Everett Shin, George Luks, Walt Kuhn, Ben Shahn, and Milton Avery are mirrored and enhanced in the musical stylings of American composers Charles Ives, William Bolcom, John Corigliano, Ned Rorem, Leonard Bernstein, and Aaron Copland. Soprano Natalie Conte and baritone Matthew Morris, 2013 Co-Winners of the Vocal Arts DC’s  Art Song Discovery Competition, pair artworks in Made in the USA with musical excerpts evocative of similar moods. In collaboration with Vocal Arts DC.
