Nationally-recognized NPR Morning Edition music commentator Miles Hoffman (and NSO alumn) takes us on a tour through classical music in the United States from the 1720s to today. In this 3-part series, follow the development and impact of classical music in the United States from its humble beginnings in the new colonies through its role in concert halls and Hollywood in the 20th century, to discover how this European tradition helped shape, and in turn was shaped by, American culture, composers and musicians.
