VAE celebrates the Ann Arbor bicentennial with a concert featuring some of the city’s great composers and poets, past and present. From its German heritage, its locus as a stop on the Underground Railroad, and its role as a hub of sixties protest, Ann Arbor’s musical bounty is rich indeed. Interweaving powerful choral music with percussion and the spoken word, this unique program brings to life the music of Ann Arbor’s history and the history of its music. With guests Malcolm Tulip and Michael Gould, Jennifer Goltz, Zilka Joseph, Jeff Kass and more.
