From the mountain towns of America.

Copland’s Appalachian Spring was composed as a ballet. Martha Graham’s tale of a wedding in rural America was an instant classic, and Copland later revised the music to fit concert hall programs– the version most of us have heard. Come hear the music in its rarely-performed original version. It's our “Simple Gift” to you!

To the wooded wilderness of ancient Greece.

Revel in the mythic fantasy of Artemis, Christopher Theofanidis’ musical retelling of the ancient Greek story about the goddess who defied her father to save her lover.

Between environment and imagination.

Be among the first to hear a new work by Pulitzer-winning composer John Luther Adams. Inspired by his experiences living in the Sonoran Desert, there is no one, not even the wind invites you to ponder the importance of space and solitude.

This is Music that connects us with our world.

Attended the concert last Saturday evening and it was an amazing performance. Dr. Wilson as always got the absolute best from the orchestra, I am so impressed with the orchestra members and how they respond to Dr. Wilson’s direction. The soloist was stunning. So glad to be there and will see you at the next concert!
