Lara Downes, piano

America Again

Recipient of the 2016 Sphinx Organization Medal of Excellence, Lara Downes presents a recital of American music inspired by the Langston Hughes poem "Let America Be America Again." Selections from Gershwin, Barber, Beach, Copland, Ellington, Bernstein and more join in a chorus of voices inspired by the persistent, often unrealized American dream of equality and opportunity. These performances mark the release of Downes’ America Again album on the Sono Luminus label.
