Benjamin Northey Chief Conductor

In the first of two Discovery Concert talks in the CSO’s 2016 season, Chief Conductor Benjamin Northey explores the phenomenon behind the ‘Dean of American Music’, Aaron Copland, with particular reference to his Pulitzer Prize-winning ballet score Appalachian Spring.

In this hour-long concert talk, the orchestra will illustrate, through extracts from the score, exactly what it is about Copland’s Appalachian Spring that makes it so distinctively ‘American’ and how it so effectively captures the essence of the bold pioneering spirit of a country full of possibilities.

This evening is a perfect prelude to our Lamb & Hayward Masterworks Appalachian to Zappa concert in September when the full composition will be performed.
