FORT WORTH, Texas (July 20, 2015) –Texas Christian University’s School of Music kicks off its second annual Festival of American Song this month to celebrate a new generation of great American music. This year’s distinguished guest artist is Jason Robert Brown – lyricist, conductor, arranger, orchestrator, director, performer and Tony Award-winning composer.

 

The Festival of American Song takes place July 25 and 26 at TCU’s PepsiCo Recital Hall, 2800 S. University Dr., Fort Worth.   

 

The festival begins with a master class taught by Brown at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 25. Admission is free. At 7 p.m., the School of Music will host a conversation with Brown moderated by alumnus and musician Shields-Collins Bray. Admission to the discussion is $10 a person or free with a valid student ID.

 

Beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 26, TCU vocalists and pianists will perform Brown’s works with the composer in attendance. The performance will include the premiere of an original piece commissioned by TCU for this year’s festival. Admission for the concert is $10 or free with a valid student ID.

 

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and community to enjoy the richness of American song and experience the method behind the music,” said Angela Turner Wilson, founding director of the festival. “Jason Robert Brown is among the most impactful and accomplished composers of our time, and we are honored to bring him to Fort Worth.” 

 

Brown has scored several of the most celebrated contemporary musicals, such as the recently revived “The Last Five Years;” his debut song cycle, “Songs for a New World;” and the powerful “Parade,” for which he won the 1999 Tony Award for Best Score. As a soloist and with his band, Brown has performed sold-out concerts around the world. 

 

The 2014 Festival of American Song featured Ricky Ian Gordon, composer of songs, stage musicals and operas.
