Williams · Hymn to the Fallen
O'Connor · Appalachian Waltz
Copland · Appalachian Spring

Our 87th Classics Season begins with a program devoted to the common elements that make us all American. John Williams’ Hymn to the Fallen highlights the Grammy-winning soundtrack to Steven Spielberg’s World War II epic Saving Private Ryan, and is considered by many as his most powerful and significant musical work in decades. Music from composer Mark O’Connor infuses a splash of bluegrass into the evening, while Copland’s Appalachian Spring concludes the concert capturing the sentimentality and gentle spirit of the American heartland.
