Cultivated Antebellum, Part 2. Outside notes: Despite the growing idea that European music (and art in general) was the source of all that is good, some Americans begin seeking an “authentic” American voice in art music early in the 19 th century. Americans “wanted to see flourish a distinctive American music, written by American composers, and, equally important, actually performed for American audiences” (Kingman- Candalaria, American Music: A Panorama , 285). •”a desire to express the nationa l, the specific , the unique sense of this place at this time” (Ibid.). The search for an American voice was not universal, however: many critics and upper class audience members looked to Europe with a reverence approaching the religious. •”an idealistic dedication to the cosmopolitan , the universal , the expression that seeks to transcend place and time” (Ibid.). The increasingly pervasive influence of Romanticism: the focus on the individual, national identity (in Europe and in the U.S.), idealization of nature, self- reliance, a challenging of Enlightenment era concepts and values, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
