Dvorak:     Symphony No. 9 “The New World”

Copland:   Rodeo

Southard:  An Appalachian Trail Symphony,  World Premiere

Often, the best part of a long-journey is “coming home.”  We complete this whirlwind Coming of Age season by celebrating our own country – both from the perspective of a composer of the “Old World,” inspired on his first visit to America in the 1890s to pen his Ninth Symphony “The New World.” Dvorak’s work evokes the majesty, the beauty, the optimism and the possibilities of the American personality, accompanied by the “Dean” of American composers—Aaron Copland and his rambunctious and good humored “Rodeo.”  Vermont composer Keane Southard’s “An Appalachian Trail Symphony” –recently completed after his hike through New England on the Trail pays homage to the beauty of where we live
