Gonzalo Farias, Associate Conductor
||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 concludes with Copland’s Appalachian Spring Suite.
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.
