Tchaikovsky isn’t the only composer who wrote great ballets. Americans wrote their own classic works for great choreographers too. Aaron Copland changed the course of American music with this three ballets. On this concert, we perform his first and (perhaps) greatest: APPALACHIAN SPRING. We will be joined, live onstage, by the State Street Ballet from Santa Barbara. On the second half of the program, the orchestra moves front and center to perform a musical suite from Duke Ellington’s only true ballet score, “The River.
