Join University of Maryland musicologist and American music specialist Patrick Warfield for a special pre-concert discussion of one of the most unusual pieces on the evening's program: Charles Ives's "General William Booth Enters Into Heaven."

Dr. Warfield will speak about how Ives borrowed pre-existing hymns and popular songs to create a piece that expresses his personal understanding of justice. Come ready to sing!
