Song of America on WUOT
Song of America explores the history of American culture through the eyes of our poets and the ears of our composers. Developed and hosted by baritone Thomas Hampson, the series treats American classic song - poetry set to music by American composers - as a vibrant diary of the American experience. Each program focuses on a particular topic that sheds light on a larger theme in American history, and includes approximately 40 minutes of songs drawn from archival and modern recordings, plus stories and insights from Mr. Hampson about the people and events that inspired those songs. Some programs also include lively interviews with experts from various fields.
NOTE: Once a month on selected Tuesdays, the start time for this program will move to 10 p.m. to accommodate a recorded performance by the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
