[AMERICAN CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL] For its Fourth of July concert, the annual summer festival appropriately focuses on some of the greatest living American composers, all of whom are still actively composing at age 75. They range from unrepentant modernist Charles Wuorinen to neo-romantic John Corigliano to eclectic Seattle-born, Michigan-based Pulitzer Prize winner William Bolcom (whose songs will be sung here by his wife, the acclaimed singer and Portland native Joan Morris). The shows on Saturday and Sunday feature the premiere of “The Territory,” which CMNW commissioned from one of Portland’s most renowned musicians, Oregon Jazz Hall of Fame pianist and PSU professor Darrell Grant. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena (from the Missoula floods to volcanic eruptions), historical highs and lows (Chief Joseph’s surrender, Japanese internment camps) and other Oregon events and people, Grant’s nine-part musical evocation of Oregon’s history and landscape will be performed by some of the nation’s finest jazzers, including drummer Brian Blade and saxophonist Steve Wilson, along with local stars like Third Angle cellist Hamilton Cheifetz and singer Marilyn Keller. Sunday’s performance is at St. Mary’s Academy (1615 SW 5th Ave.).
