AN OVERVIEW OF THREE AMERICAN CHORAL SYMPHONIES
Davis, Derek M.

2008, Master of Humanities (MHum), Wright State University, Humanities.
During the 20th century, serious composers in the United States increasingly wrote symphonies, and a few of these composers expanded the form with the use of chorus. Three key examples are Marc Blitzstein’s The Airborne Symphony, Peter Mennin’s Symphony No. 4 (“Cycle”), and Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 3 (“Kaddish”). Although all three are choral symphonies each composer took a much different approach to the form. The paper will focus on analysis of these three symphonies and examination of their place in the history of the American symphony.
