Copland’s Appalachian Spring & Billy the Kid

Fri, May 17
  • 123 West South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
No composer has achieved a distinctive musical characterization of American themes in an expressive modern style better than Aaron Copland. Lose yourself in two of his most popular pieces—the suite from the ballet Billy the Kid and Pulitzer Prize-winning Appalachian Spring. The night also features a newly commissioned work from Chinese-American Zhou Tian in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Golden Spike as well as violinist James Ehnes, one of the most dynamic and exciting performers in classical music, performing Bruch’s beautiful Violin Concerto.
