The great American landscape is the inspiration for this concert which will feature not only great music, but also beautiful and inspirational photography. Aaron Copland’s Outdoor Overture will get us out into the fresh air. Then we will move to the majestic mountains, trees, rivers and coastlines in Dave Brubeck’s Ansel Adams: America, featuring a spectacular slideshow of the great photographer’s works. Local students will show us what they cherish about Our Town, in a charming and moving tribute to Springfield. Violinist Tessa Lark, who wowed a Symphony audience two years ago with her barefoot fiddling, returns to perform a bluegrass-inspired concerto that will absolutely bring down the house! Do not miss this amazing chance to see – and hear – America the Beautiful.
