THE NEW COLOSSUS:
MUSIC OF AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS

CCM Wind Ensemble
Kevin Holzman, music director and conductor

The New Colossus (1883) by American poet Emma Lazarus has been inscribed on a plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty since 1903. It was often the first sight seen by the millions of people who immigrated to the United States from war-torn Europe in the 20th century. CCM’s Wind Ensemble celebrates some of the great composers amongst those American immigrants, who have contributed what are now cornerstones of the wind repertoire. This performance is dedicated to the remarkable legacy of Karel Husa.
