About the Festival of American Song
The Festival of American Song celebrates all genres of American song and its significant living composers.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and community to enjoy the richness of American song and experience the method behind the music,” said Angela Turner Wilson, founding director of the festival. “John Corigliano is among the most impactful and accomplished American composers of our time, and we are honored to bring him to Fort Worth.” 

In 2016, the FAS brought to campus the iconic American composer John Corigliano.

In 2015, the Festival of American Song featured Jason Robert Brown as guest artist.  Brown has scored several of the most celebrated contemporary musicals, such as the recently revived “The Last Five Years;” his debut song cycle, “Songs for a New World;” and the powerful “Parade,” for which he won the 1999 Tony Award for Best Score. As a soloist and with his band, Brown has performed sold-out concerts around the world. 

The 2014 Festival of American Song featured Ricky Ian Gordon, composer of songs, stage musicals and operas.
