Western Music

We went to hear the North State Symphony play music which focused on the Western USA.  Tonight's theme was "An American Journey: Plains, Trains, and Cowboys."  The link points to the program notes, and will probably only be good for this season.

  1. Grand Canyon Suite - "On the Trail", "Cloudburst" by Ferde Grofe

  2. Poem For Flute and Orchestra by Charles Tomlinson Griffes - Heidi Lohse, flute

  3. Concerto for Violin and Orchestra #3 in B minor, op. 61 by Camille St-Saens Allegro non troppo - Garrett Openshaw, violin

  4. Pacific 231 by Arthur Honegger

  5. Suite from Billy the Kid by Aaron Copland

The Grand Canyon Suite was beautiful, and the Suite from Billy the Kid was wonderful too.

    Thanks for the comments. I just stumbled upon your blog. I'm glad you enjoyed the concerts. The next one should be great, too. I hope you keep coming.
