The first Discover America call for scores took place in 1992. Pieces selected in Discover America I through VIII were presented in special new music concerts, as part of the regular subscription series and on live radio broadcasts. Several works were reprogrammed in subsequent seasons. Discover America IX took place in the summer of 2017. From a record 430 submissions, the Artistic Director has chosen 24 pieces being performed during the[masked] season in four programs devoted to these works. 14 of the pieces are by American composers; 10 are by composers world-wide. The composers range in age from 19 to 60+ Note: Please hold your applause for a brief silence after each piece. This will help everyone to enjoy every note. This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council. Thank you!
