Amram will be back in the same space from noon to 2 p.m. tomorrow to talk about his twelve-year collaboration with Kerouac. "It's a rare opportunity to hear how Kerouac's writings influenced his symphonic compositions," Sprenger notes. But this program won't stop there, either, because while Amram is known more as a jazz composer, he recently unveiled Symphonic Variations on a Song by Woody Guthrie. So his work "is all about how artists who are distinctly American influence one another," Sprenger says. "It's about creating American art."
