Westminster High School Chamber and Camerata Orchestra

Cherokee Trail High School - April 12, 2018

These melodies of the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska and Iowa were originally documented by Miss Alice C. Fletcher, holder of the Thaw Fellowship, Peabody Museum, Harvard University and later harmonized by Arthur Farwell (1901/1914) on piano. This orchestration was created for and dedicated to the 2017-2018 Westminster High School Chamber and Camerata Orchestras by WHS Orchestra Director, Michael Linert (2018).

You can learn more about the piece and its creation here: https://imslp.org/wiki/American_India...)
