Did you know dancer Martha Graham was the first to choreograph and dance the leading role in composer Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring? Graham actually chose the title after Copland had written much of the score. Appalachian Spring tells the story of a young frontier couple on their wedding day. The music is an uplifting anthem to America, one filled with ideals and possibilities. In this uncertain time, be inspired by the score and the beauty created by our Second Company dancers during the dress rehearsal for Appalachian Spring: Greenacres Celebration Concert this past year.
Choreographer: Suzette Boyer Webb, Director of Second Company
