Celebrate Spring with a variety of dance music! From ballet to the hoedown and the charleston, this concert combines some of the best dance music from the mid-20th century. Billy the kid’s legendary story is illustrated through a simple and homespun yet powerful retelling about one of America’s first anti-heroes. And we close this concert with yet another orchestra showpiece, “The Firebird.” It caused an absolute sensation at it’s premiere and brought instant worldwide fame to it’s brilliant composer, Igor Stravinsky. We will all know why at the end of this concert.
Copland: Billy the Kid (suite)
