About This Program
Spiritual America is a new set of electro-acoustic art songs exploring secular spirituality in America composed by William Brittelle and featuring indie rock duo Wye Oak. Heralded as “one of the most promising heirs of the vital American maverick tradition” (Classical TV), Brittelle infuses his rich, classical sounds with the visceral appeal of pop. Wye Oak, known for their “moody, achy, beautifully blustery songs” (NPR) will also perform selections from their recent album Shriek, presented in world premiere chamber arrangements by Brittelle and revered violinist/composer Michi Wiancko. The program opens with a world premiere composition by Wiancko written specifically for the event.
