 Appalachian Spring was one of my favorite concerts ever. Its been my ‘go to’ every time I’m missing my InConcert connections. – Kirsti Powell, Flute

Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, known popularly as “A Little Night Music, is noted as one of Mozart’s most famous and favored works. Appalachian Spring is another favorite that includes folk melodies and ends with a set of variations on the Shaker hymn “Simple Gifts,” which demonstrates why Copland was one of the earliest important composers who helped to establish a distinctive American sound. The story of Appalachian Spring is a very heartfelt and happy spring celebration of the American pioneers of the 19th century after building a new Pennsylvania farmhouse. Dohnanyi’s fascinating Sextet in C Major illustrates the quality, creativity and vitality of his writing. Dohnanyi has a place of honor in Hungarian culture, known as an emulator of Brahms, and contemporary of Bartók. This is truly a concert for everyone.
