Dallas Symphony music director Andrew Litton.
The sound of Americana will forever be in debt to composer Aaron Copland. His simple harmonies and melodies, and his use of folk and jazz idioms, helped establish a national musical style in America. The Dallas Symphony bids farewell to longtime music director Andrew Litton with a performance of Coplands "Appalachian Spring." This concert comes from a busy farewell week in May at the Myerson Symphony Center.
