Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Society, Inc. (Buffalo, NY 14202-1121)
Joseph I. Horowitz (Project Director: August 2015 to March 2021)
Music Unwound

Implementation of orchestra performances, lectures, recitals, and related programs exploring the history and culture informing works by composer Kurt Weill.

The present application requests $760,538 (a Chairman’s Award) for “phase three” of an existing NEH project: Music Unwound, a consortium of orchestras, festivals, and universities engaged in re-thinking their core mission in order to incorporate thematic, contextualized, cross-disciplinary public programming. In phases one and two, each participant undertook one, two, or three festival topics: “Dvorak and America,” “Copland and Mexico,” and “Charles Ives’s America.” For phase three, the consortium would add a new, fourth topic to the mix: “Kurt Weill’s America.” The four topics, in tandem, cover a broad swath of American cultural history.
