A history of classical music in the United States

Miles Hoffman, Morning Edition music commentator and dean of the Petrie School of Music at Converse College takes us on a tour through classical music in the United States from the 1720s to today. Learn about the Moravians, who developed a sophisticated classical musical culture in the backwoods of Pennsylvania and North Carolina in the 1720s. And about the American who re-wrote "Carmen" after it had flopped in Paris. And how Hollywood took American-made classical music and brought it international attention and popularity.
