The Colby College Collegium and the Colby College Chorale, in collaboration with the Colby Kennebec Choral Society, offer an American music concert in the month of thanksgiving. Invitation is an exploration of the origins of American musical styles and how they have influenced traditional compositional forms throughout history. The concert’s highlight will be Carol Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass, in collaboration with members of the Bluegrass Music Association of Maine. Other works include the complete Old American Songs by Aaron Copland, a selection of canons, catches, and rounds by Kirke Meechem, and selections from Harmony of Maine (1792) by the “Handel of Maine,” Supply Belcher.
