COPLAND Suite from The Tender Land
VIVALDI “Spring” and 'Summer' from The Four Seasons    Gareth Johnson, violin
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 6 in F Major, “Pastorale” 

Celebrate the Earth and our connection to it! Copland’s opera The Tender Land paints a vivid portrait of rural midwest, and like so much of his music, helps listeners feel a stronger connection to nature and the Earth. This suite includes the enduringly beautiful “Promise of Living”.  Local favorite Gareth Johnson returns to perform as solo violinist in two of Vivaldi’s timeless Four Seasons: hear the joyful arrival of “Spring”, and the languid heat and spectacular storms of “Summer”. Evoke the wondrous feelings of returning to nature with Beethoven’s “Pastorale” Symphony: from the trill of birds, to the trickling of creeks and the rustle of leaves.

Concert and Guest Artist Sponsor: Cottingham & Butler
