Where there are people, there is music. From the earliest humans to today’s online streaming services, music is the soundtrack to our days, a form of communication, and a cornerstone of society. Music is community, culture, and tradition. It brings people together and sets populations apart. Join the Merion Concert Band and Conductor Nathan Snyder as we explore the great tradition of folk music around the world. Enjoy pieces inspired by traditional songs from Great Britain and 19th century America. Listen for Scandinavian influences and Celtic inspiration. Experience a slice of musical history with a modern twist in this concert of songs for and by the people.
