This book is the literary legacy of a national music festival in St.
Louis, organized to identify as clearly as possible the specifically native character of music originating in the United States of America.
The festival-the Bicentennial Horizons of American Music and the Performing Arts (B.H.A.M.)-sponsored more than 250 performances and workshops between Flag Day and Independence Day 1976.
It was the only event of the Bicentennial celebration to address itself to a survey and evaluation of the musical development of this country.
