Description: This third and final concert of the 2022 summer series, August 26th, we head across the Atlantic Ocean to Colonial America. Still very young, and under heavy European influence, American born composers are searching for a new musical identity of their own. (We also peek at what the French think of this bold new American experiment!) Heavy in the choral school of singing, we also premiere a commissioned work by American composer, Michael Welsh, written especially for the Kansas City Baroque!

For Topeka Performing Arts Center, the heart of this event is raising funds to support art education programs for all youth in our community.
