Why See Philadelphia Orchestra - Copland's Appalachian Spring?
This land is your land
Community forms the basis of this program from Yannick Nezet Seguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra. With the full force of the Symphony in sync with vocalists and no less than three choirs, expect a moving and evocative evening, featuring Copland's enduring Pulitzer Prize-winning epic, Sibelius' salute to his homeland, Finlandia and a World Premiere from Hannibal.
Under the mononymous moniker, Texan composer Hannibal Lokumbe has become known for his layered works, using aspects of spirituals, blues, jazz and classical to form a musical narrative. First coming to concert hall prominence with 1990's African Portraits, an examination of the slave experience, his newest work, One land, One River, One People will explore the nature of community and our similarities to each other, as connected by a mighty river.
Performance date: 23 November 2018
