Gonzalo Farias, Associate Conductor
||Suite No. 1 from The Three-Cornered Hat
||Appalachian Spring Suite
Few symphonic pieces evoke American vistas like Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring. Centered on the Shaker hymn, “Simple Gifts,” this work’s spacious tonality defined the archetypical Americana sound. The program begins with Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides, a sound-world depicting the Scottish Highlands, and Manuel de Falla’s spicy dances from his ballet, The Three-Cornered Hat.
Concert begins at 11:00 AM. Performance is expected to last under 60 minutes and there will be no intermission. Masks must be worn at all times.
