About the Program

We're featuring distinctly American music with Aaron Copland's iconic Appalachian Spring (which is full of melodies you're sure to recognize), and the meditative Plea for Peace by living composer Augusta Read Thomas. Also on the program is one of the most frequently performed violin concertos in history, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor, and Mozart's last symphony, Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter", generally regarded as one of the greatest symphonies ever written.

Concert Highlights

  • Music Director Gerard Schwarz conducts the Palm Beach Symphony orchestra at the Society of the Four Arts.
  • World renowned violinist Chee-Yun performs Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor, his last large orchestral work and one of the most frequently performed violin concertos in history.
  • Originally a ballet, Copland's Appalachian Spring has come to epitomize him and the American Voice in classical music.
