Event Description

Dive into a program featuring quintessential American music by Aaron Copland and William Grant Still alongside an SF Symphony commission and world premiere by the Symphony’s Principal Trombone Timothy Higgins. Still’s Patterns delivers a sense of adventure that cements him as one of the most important and innovative composers of the 20th century. Higgins adds his mark to American music with the premiere of his Trombone Concerto, and the program closes with Copland’s joyously optimistic Appalachian Spring.
