Musical Landscapes

Categories: Concert

If you love art and music do not miss Musical Landscapes coming up Saturday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m. The WSO has teamed up with The Westmoreland Museum of American Art to create an beautiful audio and visual experience of Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring.  The symphony plays this iconic American music while curated images from the WMAA’s extensive collection light up the stage. Barbara Jones, the chief curator will give the introduction.  Copland’s work, initially simply titled “Ballet for Martha” (for choreographer Martha Graham), won him the Pulitzer Prize in 1945.  Read all the program notes here. 

Artistic Director Daniel Meyer conducts the concert featuring William Caballero, principal horn of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra performing Glière’s stunning Horn Concerto. The concert concludes with Smetana’s Music from Má Vlast including three of six symphonic poems about Smetana’s beloved Bohemian homeland. Make it a night out and join us for Classical Bites, a pre-concert wine reception at Caffe Barista just steps away from the Palace with convenient, free parking in the Bell Garage.  Reserve your seats today!
