Stephen Foster Revisited

The Back Bay Saxophone Quartet is our guest ensemble, performing Stephen Foster Revisited, a setting by Bill Holcombe of several familiar Stephen Foster tunes: Camptown Races, I Dream of Jeannie, O Susannah, Beautiful Dreamer, and Swannee River. Foster was considered the father of American Music and his songs have been widely incorporated, from official state songs to operatic melodies. (Source: JRO)
