SynopsisAmerica's great poets have used passionate words to respond to both the country they see around them and the country they imagine. Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou and many others have turned their keen sight and vivid imaginations to the creation of a portrait, an incantation and a critique of their America. This program will pair Steppenwolf Artistic Director Martha Lavey and other ensemble members with Chicago Children's Choir in poetry and song for a celebration of American citizenship and the loving and fiery conversation our country has with its artists. I Sing America is part of Millenium Park's Blockbuster Week.
