More About the Concert:
Jung-Ho says that Aaron Copland’s popular "Suite from Appalachian Spring" is the perfect gift for Cape Symphony fans, explaining, “Copland was one of our country’s finest composers, and his use of the Shaker song ‘Simple Gifts,’ a celebration of the simple joys found in daily life, is an American classic.”
It really is the ideal music: with its beautiful message of simplicity, Aaron Copland’s work resonates for us all during these challenging times. “Suite from Appalachian Spring” is also ideal because it requires 13 musicians, allowing us to maintain distance on the stage. We’ll be observing all appropriate safety protocols.
“Simple Gifts” is made possible by the Music Performance Trust Fund. We’re also grateful to the Cotuit Center for the Arts for the use of their main stage.
We can’t wait to share the gift of this music with you!
