"In 2005 Joan Tower accepted a commission for a work, Made in America, to be played by 65 community orchestras spread across all 50 American states. The piece was played by all the orchestras in their 2005-2006 seasons, and its recording by Leonard Slatkin and the Nashville Symphony won three 2008 Grammy awards, in the fields of Best Classical Album, Best Orchestral Performance, and Best Classical Contemporary Composition." Artist Biography by Robert Cummings

Made in America weaves the national anthem into a fantasia like work with much intensity and drama that captures ones attention. The story about the commission for this piece is fascinating too.
