Dallas Chamber Symphony presents “Appalachian Spring”

March 23

8 pm

Artistic Director and Conductor Richard McKay leads the Dallas Chamber Symphony with Copland’s original Pulitzer Prize-winning Appalachian Spring Suite, commissioned by choreographer and dancer Martha Graham in 1944. The work’s Shaker influence and wide open harmonies have made it a beloved and worthy staple of the American chamber repertoire. Back by popular demand, the DCS will reprise Harold Lloyd’s delightful romantic comedy, Bumping Into Broadway, screened to the orchestra’s live performance of an original score it commissioned from Rolfe Kent, whose film credits include Sideways and Up In the Air. The exciting evening will also include a world premiere written by Kim Osberg. An emerging Dallas composer and alum of Indiana University, she recently premiered an original opera picked up by New Voices Opera.
