Marin Alsop, conductor
Mark O'Connor, violin and composer
Mark O'Connor -
Aaron Copland captured the sound of the American landscape better than any other composer. His
Appalachian Spring paints a vivid picture of the verdant American countryside, including folk dances and song. Violinist and composer Mark O’Connor draws from bluegrass, jazz and classical traditions in his high-energy, rhythmic original compositions for fiddle and orchestra. And Duke Ellington's
Harlem represents the influence of America's greatest musical invention, jazz.
The concert will end at approximately 9:45 pm on Friday and Saturday, and at approximately 4:45 pm on Sunday.
