Copland’s Appalachian Spring & Billy the Kid
Venue
Abravanel Hall
123 W S Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions

OVERVIEW

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 Transcend 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.
