The Musical Conquest of the New World
When it came to music in the Americas, the British and Spanish imperial campaigns spread beauty, not destruction. Mexican and South American cathedral archives contain many jewels composed in the Spaniish late Renaissance style of Morales and Victoria. Choral music written in North America was much more tied to the British cathedral tradition. Composers such as Leo Sowerby and Healey Willan developed a distinctively American style without fully relinquishing their "old country" roots.

Thurgood
In 1967, Thurgood Marshall became our first African-American Supreme Court Justice. Ted Pappas directs this exuberant one-man play which tells Thurgood's story in his own words – from humble beginnings as a waiter in Baltimore, to behind the scenes with leaders such as General MacArthur, Robert Kennedy and President Lyndon Johnson, to his triumphant rise to the highest court in the land. A journey of epic proportions, Thurgood by George Stevens, Jr., is an eye-opening, humorous, and uplifting portrait of a true American hero.
