Because the Minnesota Orchestral Association has not yet reached a contract settlement with its musicians, this Young People’s Concert has been rescheduled.
Copland's Appalachian Spring will now be performed next season on April 22, 23 and 28, 2014. There will be a change in title and programming. Next year's concert, titled Rite of Spring, will include Copland’s Appalachian Spring as well as Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. New book "When Stravinsky Met Najinsky" will be read by author Lauren Stringer, along with illustrations projected above the stage.

COPLAND — Appalachian Spring
SIBELIUS — Finlandia
MÁRQUEZ — Danzon No. 2
WALTON — Crown Imperial March
Appalachian Spring is an iconic American masterpiece that glows with the "American sound" created by its composer Aaron Copland. Mexican composer Arturo Márquez’ Danzon, inspired by a Cuban-style dance, and Sibelius’ Finlandia are both viewed as national treasures in their homelands. A musical symbol of yet another nation brings the concert to a grand close: Walton’s Crown Imperial March, a magnificent work played at every British coronation.
Target age range: All ages are welcome!
