Jumpstart your spring with an afternoon led by the music director of the New York Youth Symphony, Paul Haas. The Appalachian Spring suite for 13 instruments captures the essence of the orchestral score for which Copland won a Pulitzer Prize. This condensed version equally portrays the celebration of the American frontier and highlights themes of hope, optimism, and new beginnings. Then, enjoy the rich and lyrical qualities of the tuba as Principal Tuba Greg Fuller takes center stage to perform the Vaughan Williams Tuba Concerto. Considered one of the most important works in the tuba repertoire, the concerto has been praised for its inventive and imaginative use of the tuba, and its ability to showcase the instrument's versatility and expressiveness.
