Appalachian Spring & Sinclair
3pm Saturday 13 March 2021
Wesley Uniting Church, Forrest
Aaron Copland’s score for Appalachian Spring (“Ballet for Martha”) was awarded the 1945 Pulitzer Prize for Music and became an instant success. You will delight in this timeless paragon of classical music, capturing the beauty of every-day life and rarely performed in its full-length original version for 13 instruments.
Paired with the world premiere performance of Canberran composer Chloe Sinclair’s “Rainfall of Diamonds”, commissioned by the Canberra Sinfonia to open our 2021 concert season. This piece was inspired by the idea of movement and stillness, titled for the diamond-like rain that occurs on other planets, combined with the beauty and precious nature of rain and water systems on our own planet – a perfect reflection to start the year.
Limited socially distanced tickets are available for this concert. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of an exciting world premiere performance, paired with one of the most quintessential pieces of the past century.
