ABOUT THE EVENT
Sunday Music Series | Neely Bruce presents the music of Anthony Philip Heinrich
This October, the NBMAA is thrilled to present the talents of pianist Neely Bruce and tenor Steve Hoagland. Together, they will perform a selection of works by American composer Anthony Philip Heinrich, including excerpts from the song cycle Sunset Chimes as well as marches, minuets, and waltzes.
Anthony Philip Heinrich (1781–1861) was known in his day as "the Beethoven of America." An immigrant to the United States from Central Europe, he created an extravagant musical oeuvre that reflected his unique experiences and his profound love of his adopted country.
Neely Bruce is the John Spencer Camp Professor of Music at Wesleyan University. He is currently the only pianist to have accompanied the complete solo vocal music of Charles Ives. Bruce also founded and directed two ensembles devoted to the music of the United States; and the American Music/Theatre Group. Steve Hoagland as been a featured soloist with St. Joseph's and St. Peter's Catholic Church in Danbury CT, as well as La Jolla Presbyterian Church in La Jolla, CA.
Sunday Music Series is a longstanding program at the NBMAA that features exceptional performances from a variety of local and regional ensembles.
