Symphony plays Copland’s ‘Spring’
The Youngstown Symphony Orchestra will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the debut of Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” with a performance at 7 p.m. Wednesday at St. Patrick Church, 1420 Oakhill Ave., Youngstown.
Copland won the Pulitzer Prize for the composition, one of the most famous works by the American composer also known for such pieces as “Fanfare for the Common Man,” “Billy the Kid” and “Rodeo.” Conductor Randall Craig Fleischer will lead members of the orchestra in a program that also will feature music from “Porgy and Bess” and the “Harry Potter” movies.
Tickets are $10, and are available by calling the parish office at 330-743-1109. All proceeds will benefit the Symphony Society’s Youth Orchestra and Young People’s concert initiatives.
