This Land is Ours is a sung celebration of urban, suburban, and rural life - its moods, landscapes and sounds -- This Land is Ours features music by immigrants (Kurt Weill, Paul Hindemith, Hanns Eisler, and Erich Korngold), women (Ruth Crawford Seeger, Francine Trester), and African Americans (Adolphus Hailstork, Brittney Boykin, Florence Price and H. Leslie Adams), as well as by classic American composers (Charles Ives, Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber, and Pete Seeger). This Land is Ours also includes Mirror Visions commissions from Mohammed Fairouz, Braxton Blake, and Harold Meltzer.
